The daughter of an immensely talented tailor, I learned to sew early on - designing & sewing hundreds of costumes to pay for ballet. There is an incredible challenge to designing artistic infant sleepwear. Artistry & construction for wearable art must foster optimum physical & emotional development as well as safety. I use fabric, texture & color to give baby a pleasant visual and tactical experience. I love designing award-winning, practical sleepwear that adds flair and whimsey to the nursery.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
My creative process starts with a concept & is based on a well-researched construction design. What theme would bring joy to a child’s nursery? My designs have a beautiful, artistic outer shell and are reversed lined with fabrics that are soft to baby’s touch. Once I determine the theme, I source the highest quality fabrics, taking care to mix colors & textures to stimulate baby’s cognitive development. My sleepwear is designed to become central to the theme of the nursery – fun for all.
