Fashion Designer -
I have been designing and manufacturing clothing for 11 years now. It all started with a Halloween costume that I made for my self.
I fell in love with sewing, after that I stared altering my clothing and then designing and making clothing to sell at the Street markets.
I was selling a lot of clothing so my husband and I decided to open up shop in Nelson BC. We stayed for a year then decided to move shop to Kelowna BC. I
I ran the shop there for three years well taking care of my daughter Elaina had a baby Named Alexander. I have to say having kids and running a business is a challenge at times but its definitely made me stronger.
After being in Kelowna for three years we wanted to move to a bigger city to grow the business, so we moved to Calgary. In the mist of all this I was pregnant with my 3d child.
We stayed there for a year.
This chapter of my life was one of the hardest times.
The rent was so hi and pregnant the stress of running a business got to me.
I had a emergency C-section and was back to work after 3 days, it was to much lol
So we ended up moving the business back to Kelowna BC with our new son Jackson. We have been back in Kelowna now for 4 years I have personally sewn over 14,000 peace's and have manufactured 3 thousand garments in Vancouver. It has been a long gurney. We now have our 4th son Lucas.
I love my family so much :)
In 2017 we closed down the store front. I am working from home and distributing my line to stores.
I am so happy I made that decision. Things are going really well on my online site and in stores.
