Dear Faithful came alive in 2007 after I graduated from Fashion Design at the Art Institute of Vancouver, beginning as a line of clothing and jewelry for ladies based out of Vancouver. After a few years designing I developed an overwhelming distaste for the amount of waste involved in the fashion and textile industries. The need to remove myself from that waste brought an evolution to my clothing: dresses for ladies using vintage & reclaimed materials. The joy of making something truly unique, sustainable and free of textile waste, is inspiring.
Dear Faithful evolved again when I became momma to my two little girls, Clementine Rose and Pepper June, my never-ending inspirations for the Wee Ones collections. It is now made on Vancouver Island in the charming village of Cumberland where my family and I call home. Each Dear Faithful piece is made with love, using vintage & reclaimed materials found on my treasure hunts. I enjoy breathing life into found materials, making lovely heirloom pieces for little ones. One of my biggest thrills in life is watching my daughters having tea parties and picking flowers in our garden, all while wearing sweet little pieces made in my home studio.
