We work primarily with silk charmuese, silk chiffon, silk brocade and rayon satin combining batik techniques with discharge and artisanal painting with simplicity and elegance resulting in an instantly recognizable style that has come to define our label. Having started as textile artists reinventing vintage lingerie for the downtown fashionista’s, we began designing, cutting and sewing our original designs in 1999 subsequently producing 11 fashion shows and selling in boutiques around the world. Our inspiration is drawn from nature ~ the graceful lines of a Japanese maple, the subtle shine of a crumbling shard of pyrite, the intricate pattern of a butterfly wing, the beauty of a ragged coral reef ~ channeled into layers of texture and color. The result is a classic silhouette that combines couture sensibility with bohemian spirit. Our vibe is straight up 1930’s glamour with a twist of 1970’s rock n roll, or as one client put it: Jean Harlow meets Joan Jett!
