Inspired Women: A Mini Interview Series


 

I've been wanting to share our latest collection with you. What better way than to share with you these photos of our natural and elegant pieces on real women. 

My collections are inspired by nature and intended to fit all bodies. So it's always gratifying to share my work with you as they're intended to be seen - on real and beautiful bodies.

I had the honour of meeting these lovely ladies through my local clothing business.  I hope that you enjoy their distinct perspectives and personalities as much as I do. Here's a little about each of them.

I love the look and how comfortable it feels on my body. I try to buy consciously by shopping local as often as I can. I try to remember there are small business where people are depending on the income, whereas big brands, it would not make a difference to them if you were to buy that top or not.
