It began in the year 2000. Leopard print was having a major fashion moment, and 13 year old Dina Wilkins was all aboard the craze.
"One day, I remember thinking- what if somebody designed a reversible jacket with leopard fur one one side, and zebra fur on the other, so you could always feel the soft fur against your skin?" Sounds like the musings of a zany 13 year old now, but it was that moment that Dina decided she would one day become a fashion designer.
She would work and hone in on her skill and craft for the next 20 years. What started as an idea became a hobby, a passion, an obsession, a career. She never did make that reversible furry jacket, but instead began to learn the ins and outs of sewing, pattern making, and design. In 2020, after years of dreaming, Alchemy & Sorcery was born.
"Starting my line has been a dream come true, and I couldn't be more excited to share all these pieces. I design pieces that make me feel cool, confident, and beautiful, and hope whoever puts them on will feel the same way."
