Channel the ancient tradition of the Tarot
through Haute Couture collage.
To me, high fashion is art, and one of my greatest inspirations. From a stack of fashion magazines, I became a mystical seamstress, cutting and sewing (or in this case, pasting!) together different images to create 78 individual tapestries reflecting the energies of each card.

The Story of the Deck
Welcome to the Couture Tarot!
I received my first deck of Tarot cards when I was fourteen years old. From the moment I saw the cards I was mesmerized, and the Tarot has been my dear companion ever since. Creating my own deck has been a labor of love, and I’m delighted to share it with you. Each of the cards in the Couture Tarot was created through collage art, using images from fashion magazines.
When I was a teenager, my mother and I spent many happy afternoons after school, with cups of tea and Pepperidge Farm gingerbread cookies, looking through our preferred magazines: Vogue, Bazaar, Elle, Glamour and Mademoiselle. We’d earmark the pages with our favorite outfits, some of which my mother, a seamstress, would recreate.
I have continued this thread in the Couture Tarot. To me, high fashion is art, and one of my greatest inspirations. From a stack of fashion magazines, I became a mystical seamstress, cutting and sewing (or in this case, pasting!) together different images to create 78 individual tapestries reflecting the energies of each card.
After a long illness, my mother passed while I was in the process of creating the deck. I know that her presence was with me, whispering and nudging me along as each card came to life. I like to think that, as an artist and fashionista in her own right, she would love the result.
My dearest wish is that this deck whispers to you, through insight and inspiration, prompting your imagination towards knowledge and self-discovery. That it will lead you to discover your own unique sense of the Tarot.
