The designer
Meet Diane

When I began my career in fashion, I was working for brands that catered only to 'regular' sized women. As a plus size woman, it was hard to find clothes that not only fit curves well, but were made with the beautiful soft and natural fabrics that I preferred.

Now, with over 40 years of experience fitting women of every size, I truly understand how to make clothes that fit and flatter. Always very hands on, I’m an integral part of the entire process - from design, through patternmaking, sizing, and production. Sustainability and sourcing & producing locally remain core to our company's mission.

I hope my clothes bring you the comfort and lasting quality you deserve. This is clothing I feel good about wearing myself... and sharing with you.
