My faith inspires my fashion. Just as the creator of the universe designed and made me, I want to design and make clothes that change the way we look and feel about ourselves. Psalm 139:14 says that we are all ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’ and my prayer is that every garment I produce, each stitch and weaving thread is a reflection of this statement. – Laura Jeffers.
