About Fern

With a solid foundation laid during my time pursuing degrees in Fashion Design and Merchandising, and in Fashion Marketing and Management, I immersed myself in the dynamic world of fashion with a keen focus on sustainability. My academic journey was shaped by a commitment to environmentally conscious practices, evident in coursework such as "A Night in Nîmes"; an installation made up of recycled denim, highlighting the historical roots of denim and the impact of its production.

Following my education, I seamlessly transitioned into the industry, where I have amassed invaluable hands-on experience that has significantly influenced my approach to fashion. In my roles at ModCloth, I had the opportunity to spearhead a recovery program, which prevented 40% of damaged or returned products from landfill.

Additionally, my time working on bridal alterations and for big name brands like, PrAna,  allowed me to deepen my expertise in garment fit, sewing, draping and pattern making, providing me with a holistic understanding of the intricacies within the field.

Through these roles, I honed my ability to creatively solve problems, reinforcing my commitment to excellence in every facet of fashion. These experiences have not only shaped my professional journey but have also fueled my dedication to delivering impactful, sustainable, and creative solutions to the fashion world.

My expertise lies at the intersection of three key pillars:

Sustainable Apparel

I believe in fashion with a purpose. Through my commitment to sustainable apparel, I strive to create and promote eco-friendly fashion choices. From material selection to production processes, I am dedicated to reducing the environmental footprint of the fashion industry.

3D Fashion Innovation

In the ever-evolving landscape of fashion, I embrace technology and creativity. My exploration into 3D fashion allows me to push boundaries, bringing virtual designs to life and revolutionizing the way we conceptualize and create clothing.

Clothing Alterations, Repairs, and Tailoring

Every garment tells a story, and I am here to ensure that story is tailored to perfection. With a keen eye for detail and a wealth of experience, I specialize in alterations, repairs, and tailoring services. From enhancing the fit of a garment to breathing new life into beloved pieces, my dedication to craftsmanship shines through.

Whether you're drawn to sustainable fashion, intrigued by 3D design possibilities, or in need of expert alterations, repairs, or tailoring, I invite you to explore the intersection of artistry and innovation with me.
