Recluse is a man inspired to design for women with real figures.
He would like to team with a pattern maker and make his designs available to
fashion inspired women who like to sew. He would also like to do sketches
for pattern makers for their pattern envelopes.
Recluse is from the USA, but always found that London look
from his early teens fascinating. His first inspirations in fashion would
be the days when 'Dollybirds' roamed King's Road and Mary Quant started the
miniskirt craze. He likes his models to have very long hair and that early
1970's heavy eyeliner look. His earlier designs are mainly tiny miniskirts
on models with Rapunzel length hair. He likes to keep his latest
designs simple, functional, and wearable for average and fuller figures.
Recluse comes from a creative family and observed his mother who
sewed constantly and was quite fashionable in her day. His father and
grandfather were painters. Recently, having more time since his son
has grown he's started to think of retirement hobbies and has written an
illustrated novel, started an art site, and most recent, started sketching
fashion again. These are some of his new pieces. You can also see
some more of his work by visiting his web pages
