Fashion| Designer Redesigned

For the past two years, I have been making a bigger effort to support more locally owned businesses, specifically woman and minority-owned business. It makes me feel good to spread my money around the community I live in and on products that are unique and helps to support someone’s dream and talent.

Earlier this year a little birdie and photog goddess Amber, of Images by Amber told me about Designer Redesigned, a jewelry company with a unique upcycling take on the designer pieces we all covet!

Recently I interviewed the owner Natalie, take a look below!

BUT before we get to know Natalie better, hop over to my insta and enter the giveaway to win your very own pair! Giveaway ends Saturday night at 11:59pm.

Tell me about how Designer Redesigned started?

I love accessories! I love vintage pieces! I love high end jewelry!  The problem is they are not always affordable or easy to find. I found a beautiful pair of vintage buttons and decided to make them into earrings.

What inspired you to start your business?

I made a pair of button earrings for myself and got so many compliments and inquiries on where they could be purchased.  Once I made a few pair it spiraled and the next thing I knew I was starting a business.

What makes you unique from other brands? 

I make every single piece by hand! I search for unique authentic buttons that will appeal to all of my customers.

Tell me something you’d like customers to know about your business? 

I want to empower the everyday woman to be able to wear authentic luxury items at an affordable price point. Designer shouldn’t be reserved for the wealthy.
