Hi! I'm Lissa

The best gift a mother can give is not buying you what you want.

At age 12, with little money but a young girl’s desire to have a wardrobe all her friends admired, I was “forced” to make my own.

25 years later, after completing a degree in Fashion Design, running 2 self-owned clothing lines, and raising 2 young girls, I have started something new. A new chapter, a new purpose. I think back to the “gift” my mother gave me when I was 12 and I want to give it to you!

Let's give our clothes a little more thought...

Today, we could all have less. The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world and a massive contributing factor to global warming. A lot of change needs to be made to undo what we’ve already done but there are some small steps we, as individuals, can take. By repairing or making our own clothes and refusing to buy from companies that don’t do their part to improve our environmental standards is just one bit closer towards a cleaner Earth.
