Kerri L. Mercer
The creater and owner of Black Orchid Designs.
Kerri is self taught in sewing and art. She has been creating artwork and clothing for herself and others for many years. She started creating her own clothes when she was in high school. The high cost and unreasonably small sizes of Gothic fashions prevented her from buying the many excellent garments that she wanted. Over the years she has honed her skills in design, quality and technique.
Black Orchid Designs was created in the Summer of 2004, by Kerri, with the philosophy that Black Orchid Designs will create unique designs and patterns that will fit each individual from the super skinny (the typical gothic image) to the plus sizes. Kerri enjoys the challenges that comes from creating unique garments with customer that fits perfectly and looks as close to their design ideas.
Kerri loves hunting for the most interesting and unique materials that she can find. She tries extremely hard to create garments for people that prefer not to wear certain materials, such as leather and other animal products. She will hunt out alternative materials that will produce a similar effect to the orginal design.
