My Vision

My Purpose and Passion is to create Unique Upcycled Clothing…..to dream up a Second life for Old Threads, crafting Feisty Festival Finery, Stunning Show stoppers & Wild Wooly Wonders that will have you stopped in the street

I create One of a kind pieces of patchworked and appliquéd knitwear and accessories form recycled /upcycled materials, silk dresses and tops from Vintage silk scarves and other garments from whatever else I find to deconstruct and give a new lease of life to……

New resources to be used this winter include vividly patterned vintage blankets from Holland and pastel checkered from Wales….

Every piece is ONE OF A KIND
Let me inspire you with my ONE-OFF designs……

I am happy to revamp your old favourites
Send me your item – I will transform it beyond your dreams and give it a second life

Hats, Gloves ,Hoods , Scarves  & Schoodies are concocted from leftover bits and not to be discarded off cuts

All my items are shipped in recycled packaging

 My Story

Following several years of working for magazines such as ID ,The Face & Blitz (where I was frequently asked to modify and repurpose pieces for photo shoots), styling music videos and advertising I have been designing and producing unique handcrafted, deconstructed and Upcycled Clothing since the early 90’s when I had stalls at Portobello and Spitalfields street markets in London.I went on to stock several boutiques in the capital, UK and internationally.
