Growing up in Hawaii, I was introduced to a playground of natural wonders that shaped my design aesthetics and instilled a deep respect for the limited resources of this planet. To this day, the cornerstone of my brand is slow luxury, which favors craftsmanship and elegance over fast fashions race to the next trend. I create essential statement-pieces that transcend seasons, enhancing your wardrobe throughout the year. Incorporating my love of antiques directly into the process, I use discarded and forgotten treasures to produce flattering, functional and ethical designs. Each one of a kind garment combines handmade early 20th Century crochet, paired with rescued designer fabrics deemed too small for mass production. I take these orphaned leftovers, with their unique colors and textures and using couture sewing methods, join them with gently hand-dyed crochet, creating luscious textile fusions. Entirely made in New York, I personally finish each item by hand. This new collection honors the women of yesteryear who lovingly crafted forgotten works of art, now reborn as timeless apparel.
