Mary Bart (Mary Mourning) of Autumn Moon Enchantment began her career in the fashion industry by attending college for fashion design and merchandising in Seattle. Mary excelled in the fashion industry and started designing her own clothes many years ago because she was frustrated at the lack of alternative fashion available. It wasn't long before she was designing and sewing for all of her friends as well as selling her designs at Artisan Markets since the early 90s. Mary specializes in designing alternative gothic and fantasy fashion, modern vintage, and bohemian chic styles.
Mary participated in local fashion shows presenting two different collections of Gothic clothing. Custom making collections for the Glam Rock Fashion Show and the Post Apocalyptic Fashion Show working closely with the performers from That's My Drag, Femme Rebelles, and Party Corner to put on two successful shows. Mary also is an experienced Tarot Reader and participated in several public events reading and teaching Tarot including the popular Harry Potter events at Indigo Books locally.
Currently she is building her own local and online business ( Autumn Moon Enchantment) focused on designing and hand making an independent alternative witchy bohemian fashion label. Her designs are heavily influenced by gothic and romantic fashions of eras gone by. What makes her designs unique is her love of hand picking fabrics, drafting her own patterns, and assembling each piece lovingly by hand.
Sometimes her designs are dark and mysterious, sometimes colourful and romantic, but always well made and stylish clothing for clients of all shapes and sizes!
