A little bit about me
Hi, I'm Marie, and I'm spooky. Not just on Hallowe'en, but every day. I've always liked strange and creepy things; when I used to go to the cinema to see Disney films, I liked the villains best. I've always loved sewing and attempted to make my first dress when I was 9 years old. As I got older, I couldn't find things I liked or which fit in the shops, so started to alter vintage items and sew my own clothes. My friends liked them so much they started paying me to make things for them. In 1998, I met my husband and moved to England, and joined Forever in Black.
I run Forever in Black on my own; there's just me, several sewing machines, and a lot of fabric! I custom embroider items, often items I have made myself. I like to think of them as strange and unusual. I'd definitely describe my aesthetic as Hallowe'en every day.
Everything I make starts from my aesthetic, which has developed from years of reading horror literature, watching spooky films, and wearing black every day.
