About Fait Avec
A self-taught seamstress specializing in custom work of a historical, fantastical, or otherwise unusual nature, working closely with my clients to produce beautiful, personal, functional, and unique wearable art.
My primary focus is on stagewear for burlesque, with a specialty in custom made-to-measure corsetry. I also offer ready-made and made-to-order accessory items, and provide repair, embellishment, and alteration services. I'm constantly experimenting and learning from both past and present, as well as pushing my own boundaries with the conceptualization and creation of new pieces in an ever-expanding personal collection.
The phrase "fait avec" is French for "made with" and reflects the open-ended form of creativity my designs represent; drawing upon a wide array of influences, time periods, materials and techniques, and especially the visions of a highly imaginative clientele (primarily comprised of artists and entertainers).
