Ray Baby Designs

When I looked around, I saw copies everywhere--people looking the same, dressing the same, and running far from individuality, but clothing was the easiest way I could express myself. And when clothes didn't quite fit me right, or I couldn't find clothing that screamed my name, I decided to start looking at thrift stores as fabric shops as much as I saw them as clothing stores. Textiles became my medium and my body became my canvas. I started using pre-loved clothing as a way to fight overconsumption and the horrors of fast fashion. Instead using sustainable methods of upcycling thrifted/ gifted clothing, fabric scraps and reworking previously created designs to create clothing, bags, hats and accessories that could be loved by various body types and gender identities.
