About

Support the House of the Purple Butterfly My Fashion House.
(Handmade - From My Sewing Room, Unique, Self Designed Fashion)
Journey with me as I design both closely and loosely Asian inspired historical garments from Kimono to Hakama, Haori to Daxiushan. Your financial support allows me to create more elaborate pieces and travel to more shows across the country so that supporters like you can experience my designs hands on.

My Mission
9 Years ago I started my  business venture at a local city fair in my home town, since then I have grown and participated in 5 different local city fairs some years doing over 6 shows a season. This year for the first time I participated in my 1st out of state show. I want to do more, but I need support.

Let me say to you, you are my beginning and at the end of the day it's you that drive me to create the most. You give me adrenaline. Please, support me so I have the ability to create more wow moments. Help me bring my ideas and designs off the page.

How can you support me?  
  • Share, tell your friends tell your family. 
  • Talk about my designs and my path.
  • Come see me! As my business grows and I'm able to travel further and further come see me and my work. 
  • Chatter! I was inspired to sew for others because of two ladies. Back story: Two quilters on a main street in Baltimore Maryland, stopped a crowd of us. Back then I was a costumer.  Well, they were so amazed at the things we were creating, I thought there's got to be a way everyday people can have fun wearing clothing too. Still 10 years ago I never dreamed of taking my skills to the level to sew for others, until them. Join to hear what other encounters and opportunities gave birth to the House of the Purple Butterfly
  • Donate Financial backing will open doors for me, I've gone as far as I can go on my own. I still hold a 9-5 job and what ever extra is left over I've traditionally used for material and travel but this is as far as my wings can take me. Please be my wind and lift me further. I have the desire and the drive your support won't be in vein.

My Goal for 2020 is to add another State. I'm currently showing in GA and Tennessee. My second goal is to produce 3 high level pieces as close to their traditional ancestors as I can get. 

My Current Year Goal for 2019 is to participate in both Japan Fest and the Memphis Japanese. I've been accepted to one. Join as one of the House of the Purple Butterfly's Patron to find out which one and how you can help me get ready by September! 
My other ambitious goal is a self study to purse a specialty in fashion. I'm self taught I've never taken a single formal fashion design class, or seminar. I'm patient, inquisitive, stubborn and I listen to my elders. Just because it's a quilt and not pants doesn't mean it's not fabric.  Well I'm gonna be self taught again. Join and follow me as I design my own courses with projects and finals included. Be my classroom and graders while I teach myself and pursue mastering my art of the thread and needle. 

Thank you and welcome to my House~
