About the Designer:
My earliest memories of stitching start at age 6 when my Mother taught me cross stitch. We didn’t have much money - If I wanted clothes I had to make them. I turned a degree in painting and sculpture into a Design firm, 75 galleries, plus two major department stores (Saks Fifth Avenue and I Magnum in Chicago) represented my work. Two car accidents three years apart made me change careers.
I attended Tulane University ...in New Orleans receiving a Master’s Degree in Business.
After graduate school I began sewing again.
When I wear something I made, people come up to me and ask, “Where did you get that garment?” I always lament, “Oh you can’t buy this I made it”.
I have been in the fashion industry professionally for the past seven years. Two years ago I launched Attitude Couture. Presently I am clarifying my position in the fashion industry by reaching an underserved portion of the fashion population: Baby Boomers.
I am excited to finally be free enough to design those things which are in my heart and in my head. I am putting all of my effort, love, passion of the needle and thread into my very personal clothing line - House of Hems. A double entendre: The Hem being the last part of a garment one finishes and my dear departed cat, Hemingway, who when he was bad, I said, “Hems!!! Stop it”. House of Hems an homage to my two loves, sewing and animals.
