"The clothes I make are handmade, but the fact is all the clothes we buy are handmade by someone. Maybe that someone is a mother in Bangladesh earning only three dollars a week, and that’s why your shirt is able to cost twenty bucks. I didn’t really understand the value of all the work it takes to craft well-made clothing until I began doing it myself."
"I hope to provide a place for all types of creatives to visit, gather, share and feed off of each other’s passions."
"The attitude of those working in our creative industries inspires me; they see nothing but potential - a different city than their parents and grandparents experienced - and they’re able to marry their work with community engagement."
