I have been sewing since I was a young girl. My mother is an artist and seamstress, and she always had a closet of fabrics and a project in the works. We made many trips to the local mill “outlet stores” (when they were actually attached to working mills) and dug through tables of remnants to find just the perfect piece of fabric for the current project or one to be thought of later.
I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in textile design, but spent most of my time there turning my woven or printed fabrics into clothing, some of it wearable and just some weird.
My early years in the real world were working in small studios for other designers and in retail shops both large and small. I started Red Rover Clothing in 1993; 19 or so years later, I have many national galleries and stores that sell my work as well as my own seasonal store here at the studio.
My designs are influenced in part from watching what people wear and what makes them feel comfortable and special. My customers often relate stories of the many compliments they get wearing my work. I use color, texture and detail to make the clothing unusual, but not over the top. The ribbon trims that embellish my work are my own design. All of the clothing is designed and sewn in my studio in Framingham, Ma. with the help of my assistants.
