What fabrics do you use?
Primarily bamboo and some organic cotton blends with spandex for shape. Various types of lace are used as well for detail.
Organic wherever possible. Soft, breathable and flexible at all times.
Where is your clothing made?
Moonlit Princess is all handmade with love near Vancouver, BC by Carissa.
What is your process?
All of my works are completely original from my daydreams.
I do the drawing, pattern-drafting, draping, sewing and finishing from scratch. Once the ball gets rolling I tend not to stop until the last [perfected] step.
What is your fashion background?
Since I could tie fabric together I was draping scarves, sheets, towels - anything - on my body to make gowns. Since I could draw as a child I was designing costumes.
In high-school I started really sewing. I made costumes for musical theatre and my own prom dress. Then, when I was 25 I enrolled and completed a fashion design course, though much of my skill is self-taught.
I have been commissioned to make prom and bridesmaid dresses, festival costumes and everything in-between, but my heart lies in this brand.
Will you make me a custom piece?
I am open to offer custom services for projects I feel connected with and passionate about. If you are inspired by my aesthetic and general artistic direction, feel free to contact me with your inquiry!
Where can I buy your pieces?
Effort has been made to ensure I have enough stock for large orders, but many are made per order. Moonlit Princess pieces are also available at festivals throughout the summer.
