"Boho Republic was born in 2013, but I've been styling all my life."
Maybe it started when I got my hands on a pair of scissors as a child, or perhaps it was my first trip to a thrift store. In high school I wore men's jackets with skirts and Timberland boots, during college there an infusion of costume influence, and by my 30's I had amassed a couple dozen pairs of Mary Janes and more than a closet full of vintage clothing and accessories. When I started designing it was a natural next step. Deconstruction of existing items was the gateway, and I still incorporate recycled textiles whenever possible - I enjoy the challenge it presents. Two seasons per year, fresh prints and textiles. While the silhouettes don't change a great deal from season to season (that's why they're considered classic) the vibe is always fresh.
