Read my full story here.
I am Mariana Kirova, the founder and the owner of EcoFashionSewing.com and I am very pleased that you are here!
My love for fabric began long time ago when at very young age I started collecting fabric scraps from neighbours and family friends. My dream back then was to make soft toys.
Many years later I got back into sewing. Started with quilting, but soon after I enrolled to study Fashion Design & Technology following my desire to learn how to make clothes professionally.
After graduating with an Award in Garment Construction from The West Australian Institute of Fashion & Textiles in Perth WA, I started working by doing general and bridal dressmaking and alterations for small design studios, bridal shops and individual clients.
Today I make one-of-a-kind upcycled clothing and write this blog and downloadable information products to help others, like you and me, to develop their garment creating and sewing skills, to rework unused clothing into wonderful unique pieces to treasure.
I truly believe that making your own garments at home is great fun and very rewarding process, but also could be eco-friendly and kind to the environment, at the same time.
