Andrea was born in Ottawa with the dream of being a fashion designer. Andrea has had a creative sparkle in her eye since she was a little girl and always knew that fashion was the right place to focus her creativity. Other creative passions are jewelry design, glass bead making, felt flower accessories and feather head pieces.
Andrea was born with a sewing needle in her hand influenced by her mother and grandmother. Andrea's Grandma, Terry taught her how to sew at a very young age. She is responsible for Andrea’s interest in sewing and designing lingerie, which was always her Grandma's passion. Terry has been sewing custom lingerie and swimwear for over 40 years. Sewing and designing has been a family passion for over 60 years!
After 10 years of working in the computer industry Andrea decided to leave it all behind and pursue her dream of being a designer. Andrea is a graduate of George Brown’s Fashion Techniques and design program.
Andrea is now living in Toronto but offers her services in Ottawa and Vancouver.
Andrea's award winning designs have been featured in Italian Vogue, Elle Magazine and Vogue Pattern Magazine among others. In September 2009 Andrea saw her national winning lingerie design strut the catwalk during Milan's Fall Fashion week.See the NEWS page for awards and press.
