About me

I make the world a better place by reducing clothing waste, and making whimsical upcycled clothing & accessories for every body.” 

My Story

Dramatique Designs truly started when Erin was only 11. Armed with scissors and her mother’s old pillowcases she began to make upcycled dresses for her dolls, thus a creative mind and a designer was born. Fast forward ahead through a sea of fabrics, Erin now designs dramatic, whimsical, and colorful upcycled designs in her studio in Portland, Oregon.

Dramatique Designs was built on the passion and belief that safeguarding the earth by upcycling is not only unique and different; it also helps to reduce our carbon footprint on the earth and ultimately allows you, the customer, to feel beautiful, special, and unique. We invite you to explore the exotic world of Dramatique Designs and be dazzled with uniqueness.
