Getthebuzz716 : What is your company all about?

I draw on decades of work as a costume designer for film and television and the pieces are meant to convey something about the character and emotions of the model, rather than just act as an attractive frame. I decided to start the company because it gives me a means to share my thoughts with my audience but also allowed me to create clothing for individuals who do not want to wear the same cookie-cutter fashion found everywhere.
