Fashion Design and Sewing are My Therapy. It’s an ADRENALINE RUSH from the time I arrive at the fabric shop, until the time I get back home and cut out patterns to create something new and distinctive, from Idea, to Fabric, to Creation….

I remember at the age of 18, 19 – me, sketching diagrams of fashion merchandise. Shoes, clothes, boots and costume jewelry. I’ve always had a passion for fashion. I taught myself how to sew, when I bought my first sewing machine from Walmart online. I think that taking on the challenge of fashion sewing became such a “learn-able task” for me because both my mother and grandmother were also seamstresses, plus I am a hands-on learner. I guess that I “inherited” the skill. I had to learn firsthand what the construction of fashion garments were like. It was an interesting experience.
Gradually, I learned more about patience and perfecting stitches with working on continuous fashion projects. I have designed, made and introduced my primary fashion collection with two indie models – Tina and Lucie. Tina was my first official indie fashion model. Our first photo shoot was fun! Tina featured a half and half animal print / cat print fashion bandeau dress. We had over two hours of fashionable and playful, fun poses.

FROM IDEA, TO FABRIC, TO CREATION…
It all started from an idea… When I first saw the animal print material, it attracted me. I said to myself, “I’m a use this.” And then I looked for a color or tone that would match perfectly and found the solid color to coordinate. I said to myself, “This is gonna be a fashion dress!” Now, with the help of indie fashion model Young T, she made it COME ALIVE when she slipped into this dress.
It went from being two pieces of fashion fabric, to being a fashion dress on a hanger on the door, to being modeled. She ensembled it well! Lucie, my second fashion prodigy – featured a half and half black and white striped fashion tube dress. We also had over two hours of exotic, fun-loving poses.

It went from being two pieces of fashion fabric, to being a fashion dress laid out on my sewing table, to being modeled.
She ROCKED it! In addition, I also designed and created a fashion cloth jewelry décor collection featuring leg bangles and arm bangles – which are basically a collection of bracelets and bangles for the legs and arms, designed with decorative and novelty fashion fabrics. I work well with laces, fishnets, sequins, patterns, prints, solids, furs, leathers, knits, stretches and non-stretches, embroidery and patterns. I CAN HELP! If I’m left in a room of fashion fabrics, I will create many designs, guaranteed!
Diamondfire Apparel boutique is a fashion service for those who love handmade and stylish items, including tube dresses, bandeau dresses, fashion accessories – such as leg bangles and arm jewelry, basically like costume jewelry with different designs, as a fabric or material rather than traditional jewelry made up of metals.

Fashion is a form of personal expression through style and it doesn’t mean that you have to spend a truckload of money. You can keep your budget and still look great for every event, party or outing that you attend. Anyone can wear ornaments and cover up themselves in jewellery but not every one can “Shine like a Diamond in HOTTT like Fire Apparel” amongst the crowd. More new styles of bandeau dresses, tube dresses and luxury fashion accessories coming soon. Visit Diamondfire Apparel boutique and fashion blog today!
