To me, clothing and accessories are storytellers. They draw out memories of time and place in the same way that smelling a perfume you once wore or hearing a song from your childhood does. It really is like putting on a memory and taking it for a spin.
I love making something old new again. Whether it be using fabric from secondhand clothing to create new pieces in my fashion design practice, or taking an old piece of furniture and breathing fresh life into it... There is just something so heartwarming about making things last.
