I love discovering new local designers throughout the valley of the sun and I was lucky enough to meet Alyssa Bird, the designer and owner of Regenerous Designs. Not only does she have amazing pieces but she has a great story behind them.
Alyssa takes salvaged textiles and creates handmade masterpieces. By doing this she hopes to show high end clothing companies that there is a sustainable solution to their regular contribution to landfills.
Her pieces are very versatile for any look you are going for and I love that there are various ways to wear her designs. If you are going for a casual boho look you can wrap this scarf (shown above) twice around your neck and pair it with a oversized tee and some leggings or boyfriend jeans.
This next design (shown above) is one of my favorites. Since I like to wear dresses I would pair this piece with a chocolate brown basic capped sleeve pencil dress and some knee high suede brown boots and maybe even add a delicate gold light weight necklace. The quality of her pieces are very precise and detailed and sturdy at the same time. They are great statement pieces that can tie your entire outfit together.
The designer also added necklaces to her collection. This piece is a princess cut basket weave necklace with a combination of black, knit jersey and multicolored silky spandex. All of these pieces are hand-sewn which puts a personal touch on every accessory created.
So please check this amazing local designer out!
