WHERE IT ALL STARTED
I’ve always been surrounded by fabrics, textures and dressmaking sounds. Influenced and inspired by my mom making the most beautiful garments.
I grew up with a love for unique and hand made clothing. In a world where most things are mass produced it’s sometimes hard to find fashion true to your soul.
As I browsed through old patterns from my late mother’s collection, I thought about how I would love to wear and enjoy these vintage pieces.
I want to inspire by living a grateful life. Live in the now and bring the pretty things from the past on your journey.
Often when I look at photographs I think to myself: “Wow, I love what they are wearing, that is exactly what I want.” But I never do seem to find garments that are similar.
When it comes to fashion; thrift shopping is like treasure hunting to me. It’s such a great way to add elements of other eras to your outfits. I often find great pieces and then to my disappointment discover they are too big or in bad shape.
My love for fashion and reviving retro street style got me dreaming;
and that is where Skoonma started.
