About - Katie Gariepy

Behind The Scenes...

+ + + My story
I've been sewing since I was little, but really found passion when I was 15 years old. For my 16th birthday my mother was over me breaking her sewing machine and she bought me my own Bernina. It was love at first sight, well, love at first sew.
I went to college knowing exactly what I wanted to do with my life and I graduated with a BS in Fashion Design. I've been running my business since the age of 16, it is my life passion!

+ + + Creation
Each item is made in my studio in Buffalo, NY. 

+ + + Inspiration
I am a lover of all things cute! I also adore animals, I would love to save every cat, a girl can dream. I am very inspired by fashion, I am always up to date on what's in season and love to keep up with it. Travel is something I can't get enough of, I have been to 11 different countries and I hope this list will grow. I am also heavily influenced by Japanese fashion and style.

+ + + Awards
In 2015 I was awarded the Best of Buffalo Fashion Designer award by Artvoice.
