The definition of "tempered" ("having elements mixed in satisfying proportions, moderated by the mixture of influence of an additional ingredient") brilliantly describes the process of distressing which is the main conduit of my vision to reflect effortless chic and individuality through texture and a myriad of shades of color. Each piece goes through multiple stages of being distressed through double or triple hand-dyeing, texturing and hand-painting. It is the creation of wearable art at its purest. All natural materials (silk, leather, linen, cotton, cupro). This is a small selection of current looks.
