I’m a fashion designer, a lover of handmade things, a girl who tends to obsess over clothing, hair and makeup, and food! Originally born and lived most of my life in the Midwest, I have since moved further out West with my husband Jedidiah, and we are having the best time hiking, rock climbing and enjoying the breathtaking scenery here. I never knew how wonderful living near the mountains could be, as I have previously lived my whole life in Iowa (and Chicago for a couple of those years).
I love all of the seasons, but autumn is by far my favorite! I adore the 1960’s, Hayley Mills, Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn, Françoise Hardy, Britt Ekland and all those other gorgeous vintage gals. I would say my style is sort of a modern classic version of the ‘60s. I still read Nancy Drew books, even though I am considered much too old for children’s literature!
I simply adore Swedish design and especially love the idea of incorporating Swedish with vintage design. Maybe my obsession stems from my Swedish heritage (on my mom’s side), but they just really know how to do it right!
I have my own clothing line called Anna Allen Clothing and I make all of my designs myself by hand. I am also slowly creating new sewing patterns which you can find in my Etsy shop. Sewing is such a fun and creative process. I am always working on a new sewing pattern to add to the collection. So many designs and ideas going through my head!
Always feel free to email me or comment under one of my posts. I spend a lot of time over on Instagram, so head on over there if you are curious what I am up to.
Thank you for stopping by!
