About me

This Is My Story

After graduating in Fashion Design in 1980, I designed for UK companies, creating styles for all the major UK stores.

I came to California in 1992 and began my business creating unique, custom-fit Evening wear and Bridal wear. My designs featured specialized handwork, including silk painting, dyed and embellished fabrics, and using antique details, braids, and closures.
In 1998 I began www.dancedress.com which was inspired by my interest in Argentine Tango.
Today my dresses are worn by dancers and performers Worldwide. I showcase my designs locally at dance conferences/festivals and  I produce exciting dance & Evening wear fashion shows.

My signature is dance wear which is fluid with a strong sense of fashion, suitable for any elegant occasion.
I work closely with individual clients on quality custom designs, taking great care to create a style which is crafted to fit the figure and personality of each wearer. Many of my dance wear and Bridal gowns are crafted directly onto the undergarment creating unique ease and comfort of wear.

My studio is based in Burlingame, California.
