TheSustainableCloset
If only an eco-couture gown made entirely of newspaper were the answer to all our sustainable fashion needs.

Referrals are the core of my business.  People seem to trust the idea more if someone they know has already taken the plunge.  Copy that.  In walks the challenge referral of the year.  Granted, I've done my fair share of vintage, thrifting, even consignment shopping and come out ahead, but never has a client asked me to help them create the ultimate in eco-conscious living: a completely sustainable wardrobe...

Elle Magazine's : Women in Hollywood!



On a sunny Monday in July, I loaded up my car and headed to Santa Monica's Milk Studios where I would spend the day working with Shirley MacLaine.  Excited, yes. Nervous, definitely!  It turns out I was not alone since everyone on the shoot was anxious/excited to meet the infamous Shirley.  She arrived in a flurry with her dog and publicist and once settled we all got down to the business of prepping for Elle Magazine's Women in Hollywood shoot...
