Sandra Greenaway's creations are a blend of contemporary and vintage fabrics, piecing techniques, an artful eye and couture sewing.
She is inspired by traditional Japanese kimono design and sewing techniques to create garments with elements of that tradition - simple lines, quilting, piecing of fabrics, and creative use of colour and texture.
Sandra has an Arts degree and trained in apparel design, pattern drafting and tailoring at the University of Manitoba. She now works from her home studio in Duncan on Vancouver Island.
From designing doll clothes from bits of treasured fabrics as a child and quilts in the 1980s, her collaged panels have evolved into the sophisticated garments and handbags she creates today.
