Raised in Harlem, Regina is the Founder and Seamstress of RDOE Regina first learned how to sew in Junior High at I.S 136 in Harlem in her Home Economics class.
Her first pattern was made using a paper bag for her first born child. She made baby jumpers and short sets using her mother's pant leg as her mother could not afford to buy her fabric - so she improvised!
As the years went on, Regina enjoyed making beautiful unique gifts for her family, friends and co-workers. "For me, sewing is so therapeutic which is great for me...I love creating custom made designs, visualizing it and making it come to life because it's nothing like being original...Umm, Hmm". -Regina Ashwood
