This is me at age 5 when I tried to make a bikini out of seaweed I'd collected from the beach. My ideas for creating fun things to wear didn't stop there!
The spark that launched Youphoria began at a music festival when I realized that the most rewarding experiences of my life are the moments when I help create joyful and ecstatic human connections at festivals; moments when people get sparked to interact and their new connection turns into a shared euphoria that magnifies the joy in the community around them.
I set my goal - to foster more of those moments in the world by creating interactive clothes that inspire connection and joy.
Through Youphoria I strive to accomplish that goal every day, and in a sustainable way. All our clothing is handmade in California by adult professionals in fair and safe working conditions. We used recycled materials whenever we can and we re-use (and gift!) all of our fabric scraps leftover from producing our clothing. We are proud to be part of the 'slow fashion' movement that is creating awesome clothes that are also ethically made.
The Youphoria community stands for Freedom, Connection, and Magic, and I'm honored and grateful to those who let me share my magic with them.
With love and light,
