She has been a featured designer on Fox 8's "New Day Cleveland" and multiple Northeast Ohio shops carry her items.
Ethical Slow Fashion
After graduating from Ohio University, Michelle moved to the Cleveland area and instantly fell in love with Northeast Ohio. A musician, environmentalist, and former geologist, she began designing and sewing her stage outfits and accessories after researching the dark side of the fashion industry. She strives to create high quality items, while generating as little waste as possible. All of her packaging, from the poly mailers & labels to the plastic bags & kraft wrapping, is made of recycled material and is reusable, recyclable, and made in the USA, as she supports a small Colorado business, EcoEnclose. She feels genuinely embraced by the creative entrepreneurs adding her to local shows, shop owners carrying her items in Northeast Ohio stores, print and online publications giving her press, television shows detailing her work, and all of the makers working alongside her. A lifelong philanthropist, she donates 50% of her “Charity Collection” proceeds, 100+ winter face savers a year, and funds raised from her fleece animal toys to her favorite local charities benefiting homeless individuals and animals.
