MEET THE DESIGNER
Created With Heart & Soul & Spirit
Welcome to Isy B.! I’m excited to share the work I love with you.
I come from a powerful lineage of creative women - my love of design was inherited from my mother who was a fashion designer, and she learned from her mother before her. It was with my mother that I learned to design clothes first for my dolls, then for myself and other women.
Now, my design aesthetic is inspired by a combination of influences – I love exploring the natural world, the experience of travel, and artistic expression in all forms. I am also a natural medium and I channel this intuition into my designs. I am grateful to receive much of my inspiration through my connection with Spirit and am often awestruck at the love and loveliness that comes through.
A Reminder of the Deepest Truth of Who You Are
To me, there is a distinct energetic difference between clothing that we wear that activates that sense of amazingness within us versus clothing as a patina; something that covers up the parts of ourselves that we don’t want to be seen.
My purpose is to design pieces that evoke a sense of the miracle that you are, a deep knowing inside yourself that you are amazing, without needing validation from the rest of the world. The intention behind my designs is as a reminder of the deepest truth of who you really are, beyond any labels, and stories that you have accepted about yourself.
Isy B. is a transmission, and that’s the energy that I feel when I’m creating the pieces. That’s the energy you can feel in the colours, prints and the designs. Isy B. is not for hiding or blending in. Each piece is as beautiful and unique as you are and has been created in the spirit of beauty, always with you in mind.
This is the essence of my work. Creating beautiful things that connect you back to your beauty, and back to your heart.
The core of every collection I create is rooted in elegance, effortlessness and feeling good. I design using the harmony and flow of individual elements in the colours, prints and shapes that speak to the beauty that is inherent in each of us.
Each special Isy B. creation has been lovingly designed in my studio in the Cayman and has been thoughtfully crafted from the finest materials available, working with those who share my vision, and passion for the pieces I create.
