Hi!

I'm a designer + seamstress living in Asheville, NC. I offer alteration services and special finds that are either new, or used and reworked. 

I found early inspiration in my grandmother, Ruth Walters - a seamstress and tailor by trade. My middle name is Ruth after her, and since she was my original light into this kind of work, I use my initials SRW as my brand name.

I studied Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.  After school, my skills led me to intern for several designers and work in high-end retail.  Ultimately, I learned that I not only wanted to make clothing, but I wanted to make clothing that people actually needed and to do this with integrity.

Apparel + fashion is what I do.  However possible, I'm here to help you look and feel good in the clothes that you wear.  

When I'm not working with apparel, you can find me at a yoga class, traipsing through my North Asheville neighborhood admiring the beautiful plant life, spending time with friends + family or curled up with a good book.

xx,

Sarah
