fashion ethos...please

Hey it's only a shirt, but is it? It's also a process of many elements both physical and mental. It is an expression, a product and a choice. Yeah, it's also just a shirt!

I am a fashion devotee, a professional clothier, and a sustainability harpy that wants the world to know how much fun there is in designing with a re-purpose in mind. The clothes we wear impact social, environmental and economic issues. With this in mind we can choose to create personal styles that enhance who we really are and not some marketing professionals interpretation of who "we" are. We can recreate what fashion is and what style means and we will be able to look our children in the face instead of apologizing for all the damage left in our wake.
