Awkward Stage is an environmentally conscience clothing design house based in Barrie, Ontario.
I am a clothing designer and one woman sweat shop.
I live in a world where black, white and neutral shades take a back seat. I work my fingers to the bone to create garments from vintage bed linens, kilts and a handful of other repurposed materials.
I am here to connect with people who aren't afraid of colour or pattern. Photographers who want to shoot interesting garments, models dying to showcase pieces as beautiful as themselves. Because honestly, who really needs another little black dress?
I am not just a fashion designer, I have an ever growing kit of styling gear aimed to compliment the clothing I build. Lots of vintage pieces, retro tees and undergarments and a massive collection of tights and stockings. I love to style (but am no limited to): pin-up, vintage, rock and roll inspired shoots.
My week is usually as follows:
Wednesday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm I am in my shop/studio in downtown Barrie doing production.
As of right now I am not really looking to travel out of Barrie to style for tf* shoots. I would like to spend more time working with Barrie based photographers and models. I have room in the shop for shoots and the gallery side of my space is empty for a few days to a week between shows so I have no problem setting up a full blown studio shoot in there when there isn't art on the walls.
