I named my clothing collections after each of my late grandmothers because they inspired so much of who I am and the things I love today.
The “Bonita Dress” was named after my grandmother, Bonnie, who inspired my love for creativity, sewing, and making beautiful things out of practically nothing.
I will always cherish this special memory of her:
After I had spontaneously spent the night at her house, she and my granddaddy decided to go out for dinner. Since my stay was not planned, I didn’t have any clean clothes to wear.
Immediately, my grandmother headed to her sewing room and started digging through piles of scrap fabric. She pulled out a neatly folded piece of white cotton covered in red & yellow flowers, and before I knew it, she had sewn the cutest skirt and vest outfit for me to wear to dinner. My little heart just soared and I thought that she had to be the most talented person in the world.
