Welcome to my world of eccentric and eclectic design, where slow fashion takes center stage! I invite you to join me on a journey of self-expression and creativity, while embracing the principles of sustainable and conscious consumption. As an advocate for slow fashion, I believe in the importance of cherishing quality over quantity, and valuing the craftsmanship and story behind each garment. By blending old and new pieces, I create daring and bold looks that are not only visually stunning, but also mindful of our planet's resources. I strive to promote a shift away from fast fashion trends and towards a more sustainable approach, where every piece in our wardrobe is cherished and timeless. Let's embark on this exciting adventure together, celebrating individuality, sustainability, and the joy of being true to yourself through the lens of slow fashion.
Audrie Austin is a multi-talented professional with a diverse background in fashion design, interior design, and artistic event planning. She has been actively involved in the arts since her childhood, participating in dance, theatre, ceramics, and metal shop during her school years.
Austin pursued her passion for fashion and interior design by studying at both Wade College and El Centro College. She later founded Audrie Austin LLC and has been designing custom apparel for over 30 years. During her tenure, she organized Fashion Shows for ONLI Boutique from 2009 to 2012. Additionally, she is an accomplished woodworker and has been building and restoring furniture for over 20 years.
In 2006, Austin founded the No Limits Arts Theatre (NLAT), which provides a space for youth artists between the ages of 6 and 18 to showcase their talents. Her commitment to promoting the arts has led her to support teachers by collecting school supplies and offering free art classes to veterans, first responders, and their spouses as a source of healing through art. Since its inception, NLAT has donated $10,000 in school supplies.
In 2009, Austin initiated the Brentwood Neighborhood Association and served as its President. Under her leadership, the association secured a grant for street sign toppers that mark the neighborhood's boundaries and are a source of pride for its residents. Austin is an active volunteer in her community, planting trees, hosting neighborhood cleanups, and participating in beautification projects. Through her outreach efforts, Austin is inspired to build a legacy by providing artistic healing to the community she serves through NLAT.
