    Plum-outtake-1_listing

    I’m very proud of this dress. It’s my first try at boning and I think I did pretty well. The only think I noticed is that I pushed the bust down. (I was supposed to leave the bones below the bust s…

    It seems difficult since I don’t have the full edu stood and training of most fashion students. They usually are able to start under a larger designer and then branch off into their own label.

    This was my first attempt at women’s pants. I knew I wanted the hem to scrape the floor and make the wearers legs long as possible.

    Darren Nesbitt added the project Brown Zebra Print Blazer
    Zebrablazerfront_listing

    My client wanted something modern and bold but not too graphic. So I think this Brown Zebra print was perfect. It almost looks like a blazer you would find in a 70’s resale shop. But because the c…

    A friend of mine asked me to make her a dress for her baby shower. I noticed that pregnant women love to talk about how bad they look and it sounds like they almost plan to look simple at their ba…
