the design process

I believe that the best clothes not only fit your body well, but they also show off your spirit, so I design intuitively based on who you are and what you love to wear.

The design process generally takes 8 – 12 weeks from first contact to completed garment, based on my availability and the complexity of the project. It starts with a conversation about what would make you feel fabulous & what clothing would best suit the occasion & your personality.



We'll talk about your favorite colors, outfits, inspirations, etc. and I will sketch out some design options.

I will then make up a fitting sample of the preliminary design based on your measurements. We will also be choosing the fabrics via swatches and photos, or you may wish to accompany me to the fabric store.

Based on the fitting sample & fabric choices, we will finalize which design you'd love to wear and the pattern for your garment will be completed.

Consultations can be done in person in the Los Angeles area, or via phone. To ensure the very best fit, I prefer to take measurements and test fittings in person but can give detailed instructions if you can’t arrange a local meeting.
