Thanks for the interest in my work. I have studied in London and Boston, and interned at the Boston Ballet design room. Receiver of the International Fashion Group award. Left Chamberlyne with Best of Show for my Asian collection. Currently working on a new line of Asian inspired garments. I pattern, drape, bead, fabric art, sketch and sew all my one of a kind-couture pieces by hand.
Boston Fashion week interview by Natalie King
Debuting her collection at Fashion Week in just a few days, I met up with Drea of Drea Designs and we talked about her collection over cups of cappuccino and stacks of Vogue magazines. I had first met Drea last year at a photo shoot and couldn't help but notice the models reactions to the Asian robes. "They make you feel like a mix of old Hollywood starlet and Geisha girl---fabulous" one said. The robes have become Drea's signature silhouette; long and cinched at the waist with fabric that drapes on the body in a way that makes you appear very tall and lean. Azure, gold, black, and blood red, the colors are bold, yet the whole effect is very 'effortless-glamour' because of the uncomplicated silhouette. She is involved with every aspect of her designs, "I pattern, drape, bead, fabric art, sketch and sew all my one of a kind-couture pieces by hand" she says "and I am inspired each day to create new designs, use new colors and techniques, while staying true to design esthetic". Drea is the receiver of the International Fashion Group award, and left Chamberlyne with Best of Show for her Asian collection. She is currently working on a new line of Asian inspired garments.
