A giant welcome back to the Bison to Sherri Cardona of Nor Official! Sherri’s been bringing her most excellent line of apparel to the fair since 2017, and it’s always such a treat to see what she’s making. Here’s how she describes her work:
“I make comfortable, beautiful women’s clothing and modern minimal leather fanny packs. I design and hand craft all of the pieces at my apartment studio in downtown Edmonton and value ethical and sustainable fashion.
What was the first thing you ever made (no matter how gnarly it was)?
It was a denim skirt and a matching denim snap top for my high school fashion show haha.
What is the hardest / most challenging part of being a maker?
Managing my time with two full time jobs.
How do you stay motivated when you face these types of challenges?
I like to design and create new things that keep me inspired and excited.
Describe your current creative process in 3 words.
Slow, Fun, Inspiring.
