My love of fashion began early when I made clothes
for my dolls using scraps of left-over fabric from
my mother's job.
Mother's clients traveled the world, and I had access
to Japanese silks, fabulous mohair, French lace and
many other exotic textiles.
I received a degree in fashion design and went on
selling my designs both retail and private clientele.
I continue my love of fashion and fabrics to this
I divide my time between Pasadena and Paris, always
searching for new textiles from around the world.
