Fashion designer Bridgett Artise believes in second chancesa philosophy that extends all the way to her clothing line, B. Artise Originals. Fashion gave her a second chance at happiness and success, and, in turn, she gives vintage garments that have lost their luster another chance at being fashionable. Mixing contemporary clothing with the best elements of a vintage piecelike the collar of a funky fifties housedress or the pockets of a seventies-style jacketand piecing them back together in a whole new way, she creates one-of-a-kind garments that are both trend setting and timeless. An old-fashioned ruffled shirt with terrific buttons, plus an inexpensive tank top, can become a unique top. A poodle skirt and that so-last-years knee-length cardigan sweater can be turned into anything from a mini-poncho to a structured tube top.
