Artist and designer, Louise Presley is a gatherer of antique garments, vintage textiles and a rescuer of the random. Working solely with materials that are sensitive to the environment she makes one-off garments, accessories and artwork that have purpose and meaning. As a fashion designer in the eco-friendly 90’s her work is grounded by ethical values. She employs traditional skills and time worthy techniques to counterbalance wasteful consumption. Her style is vernacular, intergenerational and appeals to those interested in a good back-story.
*As the founder of Hope & Elvis she returned to full time making in 2018.
