Hayley Trezise is the socially conscious founder and designer behind Raggedy, a sustainable fashion brand based in Somerset, England creating unique fashion forward designs reusing old clothes. Growing up with a seamstress mother it seemed inevitable that Hayley would pursue a career in fashion and so she did, after graduating with Fine Art degree from Art school she later created Raggedy.
Through Raggedy Hayley was able to combine her passion for dressing differently along with beliefs in reuse to design garments that could be worn with pride as well as be enjoyed as unique pieces of art. The clothes are created intuitively, they are often deliberately asymmetrical and sculpted together from a combination of stitch work, patchwork, ruffles and plenty of layers. Confidence and self expression is very important and Hayley often questions where the freedom for our unique individuality has gone. She wants her clothes to help women wear what they truly desire without fear of judgement and just ‘Feel good about feeling good’.
In an effort to push her boundaries and creativity, after much experimentation Hayley came up ‘Scribble Stich’, a distinctive design creating fabric from scratch and giving it a unique feel and form, allowing her to create even more striking innovative pieces. Raggedy is stocked in various independent boutiques across England and Wales, in addition Hayley takes on high end commissions for clients who admire her work and she also attends Art Exhibitions to show off her work and create art installations.
Raggedy is about inspiring people to celebrate art and fashion in different ways while being kind to the environment.
