This website is dedicated to my mother who urged me to start sewing for myself after my ideas were out of her realm, but she said to never sew for other people…..
Here’s to rebellion and never listening to our mothers! LOL!
I love you mom!
I want to Thank everyone that helped make this website possible beginning with Timna and Hania who persisted that I undertake the 18th century project which resurrected my enthusiasm and love for this world of fashion and fantasy, which prompted this website, and to strive for my dreams.
I want to thank everyone that provided me with their photographs, testimonials, helping with edits and re-writes, their feedback, donating their time with photos, modeling, and just plain supporting my vision;
I thank you all and greatly appreciate each and every one of you deeply from the bottom of my heart.
A very special thank you goes to:
Monique Wagner, my assistant, who generously committed her time to me in creating the 18th century collection. Along with all of her creative talents and her dedication, she inspired me to persevere over all of the hurdles, the hardships, the long hours and hard work to make this all possible. Her loyalty is truly amazing and without her special friendship it would not have been the same.
Valery Svenski, my contractor for the men’s 18th century suits. His beautiful work and talent he possesses creating my vision & designs from long distance, is incredible and so special to me.
Clara Magyar, Terry Putz, and Laura Whitlock: for all of their editing skills and creative writing abilities.
I cherish their friendship for spending many long hours of reading and listening, as well as their knowledge when perfection was in my greatest interest.
My mother and her friend Debbie, my additional seamstresses, who graciously donated their time for additional sewing and support throughout this process. I am so lucky to have had their devotion to me.
And to everyone else who believes in me and appreciates my talents….Thank you very much and please enjoy this website!
