Leave Beautiful Steps Behind…

I have been designing in Hamilton since 2015 formerly as The Thrifty Designer featuring original upcycled & repurposed designs using an array of rescued and forgotten textiles.

With a career in the fashion industry spanning over 35 years as a fashion designer and product developer, I have developed a love for high quality textiles where my creations reflect this love.

As a society, we so easily throw away clothing and textiles instead of looking at how to give them new life.
