Cottagecore meets streetwear. Welcome to moonlightcitizen.
Hello! I'm LC. I started moonlightcitizen as a creative outlet to my corporate 9 to 5 (ish) and potentially a way to ditch the 9to5 altogether. I have been sewing since I was a young, poor, loner child. With no friends, a lot of time, and an old, off-brand sewing machine I inherited from my grandmother, I turned my Salvation Army finds into trendy, quirky threads. While my first piece, a reworked jumper from a two piece shoulder padded suit-set, did not quite get the attention I had hoped for, I didn't give up. I tuned my sewing skills, learned a bit about pattern-making and fashion design, and eventually started making pieces that could pass as professional and interesting, in a good way. As I entered adulthood, I quickly learned more about the pollution of the apparel/fast-fashion industry and realized I wanted to share my work with the world.
Join me. Let's take the burden off of the corporate apparel industry and make the world a better place.
