I am an independent clothing designer in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. My goal is to make beautiful, wearable clothing for women who appreciate quality and authentic simplicity in their dress. I use natural fabrics such as silk, wool, cotton, linen and hemp in my design work.
My line of clothing was born out of my inspiration of indigo dyed fabric. For centuries, dye from the indigo plant was one of the only ways to create blue fabric and was a staple of world trade. The grady bleu® name was inspired by the history and tradition of indigo blue. Not limiting my designs to the color blue, I use a core colour palette of blues, browns, whites, beiges, blacks and greys. Staying true to contemporary design, I also like to incorporate found and special fabrics as an accent in a one-of-a-kind piece.
Along with 35+ years of designing clothing, my extensive travels have given me an appreciation for clothing traditions from around the world. I have traveled to Southeast Asia, India, and Africa seeking out naturally dyed textiles and learning about the people who make them and the techniques they have used for centuries.
