Janine McAughren has been sewing and designing since she was 11 years old. McAughren began by sewing with her mother at the dining room table as a child, and continued to create throughout her life. McAughren was born and raised on Vancouver Island, and is inspired by the natural, west coast vibes. McAughren spent 4 years at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in the Fashion Design & Technology program, then recently established her hand-dyed brand Ghren. McAughren crafts contemporary, hand dyed clothing for an eco-conscious woman. Their style combines west coast aesthetics with traditional, natural printing methods to rejuvenate the historical roots of colour. Ghren’s spring/summer 2018 collection called, Indigo Shores is a modern styled collection that is inspired by the fluidity of the ocean, and the hard angles of origami folds.
