Hi! I’m Queenora. Queenora Renee is my brand for custom garments and custom textile fabric.
I started sewing in 2014 when I was looking for professional clothes for a new job and experienced a difficult time finding clothes that I liked and suited my body. While looking on Pinterest for outfit ideas to camouflage certain parts of my body, I came upon a sewing blogger who handmade a dress that I fell in love with. From that point, I committed myself to learn to sew because who else can make clothes for my body better than me :)
From these years of sewing for myself and close family/friends, I have learned two things:1. How out of touch the fashion industry is in having garments available in today's average women sizing and 2. How underrepresented the black/African American community is within the custom fabric world. It is my hope and mission to help assist in resolving these issues.
As a black woman, I know too well how important it is to see yourself confidently in all facets of life - including on fabric. With my custom fabric, I aim to help bring representation to black people and our culture while starting a conversation on issues within the black community.
