I am personally inspired by the process of creating a garment. It is an art, where fibers are intertwined in a rhythmic dance creating a sheet of fabric. Using tools we cut and stitch thoughtfully to form a finished piece.


 Making the connection between how we choose to live our lives, how we dress and relax, how we take care of ourselves and how we care for others is at the heart of everything. Finding our authentic self by being true to ourselves is what makes us remarkable.


You are just that, just by being yourself.


Build Your Wardrobe has been created for you to express through dress!  Connecting our hearts with our creative spirit will open your imagination and design a self-curated wardrobe of beautiful pieces. Each design, material, technique and inspiration is founded in generosity, community and genuine love. Creating with mindfulness, community and in happiness is at the core of what we offer.
