Instructor Bio:

This is Brittani, the Owner and Head designer for Untitled Thoughts . Brittani absolutely loves everything about nature- if she could live entirely outside, she probably would! Ever since she was young, clothing seemed to be an outlet for expressing her personality, and when she learned how to sew, nothing could slow her roll! To her, clothing represents a form of freedom and expression of confidence, all of which Brittani wants other women to feel when they wear one of her pieces. Not surprisingly, Brittani strivesĀ  to put an eco-green stamp of approval on as many practices here at Untitled Thoughts as she can. Each day, she brings new ideas on how to be more environmentally conscious amongst the fast fashion giants threatening to forever shape the earth in a negative way.
