Being taught by her beautiful mother to sew at an early age was just one of the many practical skills Jaime learned growing up. It wasn’t until her teenage years which were mostly spent dressing like a tomboy and shopping in the mens department that she considered designing and making clothing as a career.
In 1996, during her hitchhiking travels around the US, she began hand stitching hippie style and renaissance clothing in order to make money to feed herself. By 2001, Jaime endured her first shift in design to make clothing for exotic dancers. Naturally, as a performer herself, she grew accustomed to the circus arts and the inspiring fashions to be worn in front of the curtains.
After a few very successful fashion shows in Portland, Oregon, Jaime focused her design work to create one of a kind clothing for all kinds of performers from contortionists, burlesque dancers, aerialists and jugglers to fire dancers.
