Each one of my jacket, coat and vest designs is an original; handmade in Belen, New Mexico. Inspired by the beauty of New Mexico’s waters, earth, sunrises and sunsets each piece captures the colors of that element. Beautiful, distinctive fabrics infused with our state’s natural beauty are crafted into a piece of wearable art. I wanted to illustrate through this wearable art, the beauty of our southwestern influence.
My mother, Mary, introduced me to sewing over 40 years ago; my first piece a sleeveless sheath. In honor of her and her sister’s creativity with fabrics I have named my company after them, Mary and Georgette Design, shortened to m-g designs.
Living in the country in New Mexico offers inspiration for my work on a daily basis. You will find me at my studio in Belen, New Mexico designing, constructing and creating beauty for you to wear.
