Denise's designs live at the intersection of innovative making and sustainable fashion. A New York City native, she is currently based in Oakland, California, among a thriving community of passionate makers. She is inspired by geometry and nature and is drawn to texture over color, structure over drape.
She worked as a fashion executive in NYC for 15 years, walking away from fast fashion to seek more meaningful work. Today she spends her time sewing, knitting, and crocheting. When she's not crafting, you'll find her hiking somewhere along the coast.
