bevys sewing history with design began when she begged her mum to teach her to sew. when the day finally came, candy (rip) taught bevy the simple tricks of tying a knot, sewing two pieces of clothe right sides together, and ending it with another knot. voilà, here were have a pocket! but it did not end there, upon graduating from an academic high school, beverly set out for an education at ryerson's fashion program to follow the hunch her mother left her - style. her first time in design school, she did not expect such vigourous training. beverly studied in & out at ryerson for three years and a Milan summer program before she completed her fashion design education at george brown college in 2010. since then, she has realized her love for costumes, and steered away from the fashion world due to the fact that bevy is not interested in following trends, a fundamental aspect of fashion, but sees costumes as a symbolic way of dressing and expressing one's self.
