Welcome, thanks for stopping by!
After years of working in positions that didn't fully light me up, I finally plucked up the courage to follow my dream and create Silks and Stars.
The brand started as a refuge. A place I could go to get totally lost and forget about the worries of everyday life. But as it grew, the reason for starting the brand become clearer. I wanted people to feel good about themselves, to give people the confidence to stand up tall no matter what life threw at them.
I noticed the link between what I was wearing and how confident I felt very early on. I can recall so many times where I would avoid interacting with people just because the top I was wearing that day made me feel frumpy or I felt self-conscious in the dress I had on, but it wasn't until I really started feeling good about myself on the inside that I started to feel good on the outside too. Confidence and self-love are most certainly skin deep but we all know this combined with the power of a good outfit can make us feel like we can take on the world. Clothing is an extension of our self-expression and personality, and when we wear something we feel great in and it is authentic to us, we feel unstoppable.
So that's my mission, to make people feel like they can take on the world. I believe - and know - self-love and confidence are life changing so I want to encourage women to reconnect with theirs - because everyone is worthy of feeling good about themselves.
Each and every piece is curated and designed with you in mind. Like most small businesses, we started as a wholesale business but as we've grown I have been able to introduce my own designs which I love. I use only the highest quality materials and I always strive to create timeless yet unique styles that you can wear again and again for seasons to come.
Lastly, I pour my heart and soul into every aspect of Silks and Stars so thanks for being here and supporting my business.
