COLLETTE's BIO

Born and raised in the Seattle area after school I headed down south to Los Angeles, CA to pursue my love of fashion. Here I attended the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising or FIDM where I received a AA Degree in Fashion Merchandise Marketing.

Since the small age of five I had been taking my moms old scraps of socks and blankets and sewing clothes for my barbies or anything I could get my hands on. So I knew at a very young age that this was the right career for me!

After college I traveled around the country for 8 years working on several film productions. I have done everything from constructing my own garmets, dying & distressing fabrics, working as a costumer on set and finally designing several feature films. I also do light hair and makeup so I can complete the look from head to toe!

A dream of mine had always been to open up my own clothing boutique, so in 2005 that dream came true. My shop is called ISH Vintage Clothing and is located in Bremerton, WA. It has been a fun adventure and a big success. I carry mens, womens and childrens vintage garmets that date back to the early 1920ís and going through the 1980ís. Most of the pieces in my shop have either been designed or collected by me in my travels throughout. the years.

On top of my vintage clothing collection I also have a large stock of comtemporary wardrobe. Anything you need I have it!

In 2005 I also started working on more commecial motion picture and print location and studio work. There is no job to big or small for me. I am a highly organized stylist with a love for travel, adventure and people. I enjoy working outdoors and I will always have a smile on my face and will adapt to whatever the job requires.
