More about Justin...
I have enjoyed 29 years in the garment construction industry.  I began in Berkeley, Ca. teaching myself the art. I attended UC Santa Barbara and moved on to earn a degree from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), Los Angeles. My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to:  Pattern drafting, wedding dresses: Design and construction, general alterations,  reconstructions, couture, formal dresses costuming and prop making.

I was born and raised in Berkeley, California and have lived in Southern California since 1989. I am the proud father of three and have been married for 21 years 

In today’s culture, we spend far too much time contorting our bodies in order to meet the current standards of fashion. Fashion is far too fickle and unstable a thing to devote that many heartstrings to it.  My philosophy is simply to make the clothes fit the people and not to make the people fit the clothes. Fashion is to be used as a means of expression and creativity, not a standard of life or a measure of weight. Always remember, this is supposed to be fun, not soul-crushing work.  To be overly concerned about how a curve goes funny is very unattractive. It is very attractive, however, to see a person who is confident about the ‘unique exceptions’ of their body and strut their stuff as is. For example, a gap in the teeth will matter very little to those around the one who loves to laugh and smile. They will barely notice the imperfection because the joy is what radiates most.  I try to emulate this attitude in all my designs.
