About Me

 

As a child I loved creating things, and did a lot of doodling. I made clothes for my Dolls from remnant fabric on my Mothers old Singer sewing machine.  Later, I started to make outfits to wear at school.

The yearning to create never left me.  The inspiration for creating my own fashion line came when I rummaged through my mothers trunk in which she stored her old clothes.  I found a number of beautiful dresses one of which she wore as a young woman when she travelled to the UK from the Caribbean with the last batch of the Windrush generation in the early seventies.  She came to study and to work as a Nurse.

When designing for Terre Amoure London I love taking a little from by gone times whilst also playing with more contemporary silhouettes.  My designs stem from my love of art and timeless details of the past.  Items can be made to your specific measurements and are created from Certified sustainable Natural Materials or Deadstock Material. They are all Made by hand in the heart of London.

I see my designs as representing the strength, resilience and femininity of women.  I pride in creating pieces for Terre Amoure and I take care to add those details which make each design something special.
