Sarah’s Journey to become a designer didn’t happen intentionally at first. When Sarah’s oldest daughter was small she couldn’t afford new, trendy clothing, so she decided to teach herself to sew and use her old clothing to remake clothing and accessories for her baby girl.
In 2009 when an old friend was inspired by the clothing Sarah was making for her daughter she asked Sarah to design her children’s collection for an Apparel Co. in Nashville, Tennessee. With the experience she gained while working in Nashville this led her to create Redeux Kidz (pronounced redo) to give herself a platform to show other people how cool and fun it can be to upcycle old clothing into new outfits. It has always been really important to Sarah to give back to the children in community, so with of every piece of custom ReDeux Kidz clothing sold she helps a family in need. Sarah believes kids fashion should be fun and upcycling as much as possible is her goal! Her design motto is add the love to the old and make it new again.. Clothing for children should be unique, comfortable and fun! Telling a story with fashion and mixing and matching different textures and styles are some of ReDeux Kidz trademarks.
With her love of refashioning she knew she couldn’t stop there! She started upcycling EVERYTHING for her kids! Bookshelves into sandboxes, shower curtains and broomsticks into play teepees, she has even upcycled a plastic veggie tray and olive can into a homework station. If its not being used she will find a way to make it useful!
