Creativity Inspires Creativity

My name is Patricia Valery and every piece in my shop is designed, cut and sewn by me.
I've been working as a clothing designer for the past ten years. I studied apparel design at FSU and was able to pay for college by selling handmade clothing!

I have designed for many artists including Tori Amos, The Reverend Horton Heat, Amanda Palmer, The Ramones. I've also worked with Cirque du Soleil and The Rockettes.
My work has been featured in several magazines including Bust, Wonkavision, Curve, and Brink.
I am interviewed in the book "Customize Your Clothes: A Head-to-Toe Guide to Reinventing Your Wardrobe" by Rain Blanken.

I live with my boyfriend and our dog Boomerang in a vintage 20's bungalow that we're slowly restoring here in St Petersburg, Florida. I am an animal lover and vegetarian so I've made the commitment to keep all of my garments free of leather products.

Here's a lovely video of a photo shoot for a few of my wedding dresses:
