I’m a quirky Canadian creator & sustainable stylista who lived a most extraordinary existence in North America, Japan, England, Greece and Germany before finally ending up in Toronto after over 20 years spent living abroad.
…having a blast with my retro sewing machine, thrifted fabrics & upcycled stash
…am the very proud mama of my very own completely self-produced book-baby (sold out)
…have begun publishing my CoaR for $3 tutorial collection e-books
…have published a Confessions of a Refashionista kindle series
…and am also producing my own series of groovilicious DIY webisodes!
I’m often asked why I work so hard creating & sharing refashioning/DIY tutorials & thrifted/second hand outfit inspiration for free – this is why.
In the 4 short years that I have been sewing & creating I’ve managed to amass a fabulously large (yet completely organized) stash consisting of 100% vintage, recycled & second hand fabrics, embellishments + loads of other awesome diy materials. Take a peek at my bday Q&A video and take a tour of my tiny DIY studio in Berlin & stash storage solutions (I’ll be sharing my new Toronto workspace once I’m all set up and settled in):
Pop on your headphones, crank up the volume & have a listen to the eclectic mix of tunes that get my maker blood pumpin’…
