Painted Lady takes care to provide our clients high quality services personalized for your unique needs.  And when we all face such financial and emotional challenges, the last thing we think about is clothing.

However, it is a necessary part of daily life.  And many of us have closets full of clothing that we don't wear because it doesn't fit, it's out of style, or your tastes have changed.

Lady Faie is here to  help!!!  

All clothing has an afterlife!  If it's in good condition or even has some wear and tear, it can be re-purposed into something else or for someone else.  And I can make that happen for you!

Send me photos of what you have to work with and what you want it to become.  There are so many options.  I can help you envision the final result and utilize one or several items into a new garment that fits and flatters.

There's no cost for the consultation, and due to the tough times, I can help you keep within your budget to create a new wardrobe.

Do you sew, but aren't sure what you can do with what you have?  I can help there, too.  I'm happy to brainstorm with you.  

Drop me a message and let's all make this situation a little easier together.
At Painted Lady Clothiers, I understand this difficult time.  We've all been hit hard by the sudden turn of events that have left many without income and wondering when things will get back to normal and if they ever will.

Take heart, my dear friends, this too shall pass.  We will all weather the storm and come out stronger and more resilient...discovering more about ourselves and what we can do to overcome and move forward. 

It will be different.  There will be changes.  There will be tragedy.  There will be hope.  There will be perseverance.  There will be greatness as individuals, as families, as communities, as nations and as human beings.

Our love, support and gratitude goes out to all of our friends, family and clients around the world.  We hope you will all triumph when this is over and life again finds balance.

It's all about keeping your favorite outfit for years, giving it new life if it no longer meets your needs or sharing the love with others.

There are several options available:  Refurbishing, Upcycling, Redemption and Bequeathing.

“Your favorite outfit should last for decades and never go out of style" --Lady Faie
Things to Consider ~~Slow Fashion VS Fast Fashion 

Painted Lady has truly become a living entity, focused on nurturing your own inner alter ego and creative, personal expression through wearable, sustainable art.

Throughout my designing, I have aimed to create clothing that was both fun to wear, easy to care for and resilient for years of enjoyment.

Fashion today has become trendy and disposable.  It wasn't until mid 1800s that clothing started to make its way from custom-made to off-the-rack.  Why throw out a garment rather than patch it or replace the zipper?  I still have clothes in my closet from the 80s that I wear and are still in style.

Clothing has become cheap, thus contributing to the disposable garment trend.  Much of the outfits we purchase lasts about one wash then is tossed out and replaced by the next item on the clearance rack.  Most of this costs less than $10 to buy, and we don't think much about it except "what an awesome deal I just got".

But wait! I can rarely sew my own top for less than $10, let alone make up my time for the effort.  

So who pays for those discounted, poorly made garments?

Sweatshop workers, designers and the environment. Many department stores will charge back their losses directly to the designer, and in some cases, the designer ends up paying the store to have their clothes on the racks.

And I can't even begin about the women and children in the sweatshops...more plentiful than you would believe. They are real and all over the world, including China, India, Russia and the United States. Women and children working long days, some over 15 hours and every day of the week. Conditions are dirty, dangerous and miserable.

Painted Lady strives to educate and bring awareness to the horrors of the fashion industry. Currently all of our skirts, pantaloons and wraps are nearly 100% zero waste. By doing all the sewing and dyeing myself, I am able to monitor the waste and impact to the environment. I research continuously and devote myself to doing all I can to support eco-friendly, ethical and sustainable fashions for my clients.

It's all about keeping your favorite outfit for years, giving it new life if it no longer meets your needs or sharing the love with others.
