My name is Demetra Rowan. My mother honored me with the nickname Duchess when I was born (it was my aunt's name). I was born in Atlanta, Georgia. I started sewing over 40 years ago.  I was blessed to design and construct clothing since I could not find clothes that fit me(tall).   My Saturday and Sunday afternoons were spent either at the theater,  watching old movies on TV, or reading classic novels, where I fell in love with the glamorous gowns of Grace Kelly, Ginger Rogers, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn and so many others. I loved the elegance of the 1940's-1950's and my style reflects that elegance.   I started making jewelry 20 years ago, because I could not find designs that matched my personality or my custom gowns. GOD blessed me with these wonderful talents and I enjoy sharing them with others by making their vision come to life.  My first evening gown was a re-design for a Ms. Georgia contestant in the early 1980's.  I have continued to refine my skills in construction and design by taking extensive training from industry professionals (patternmakers, sample makers and stylists).  I have also taken jobs in the industry as a sample maker for other designers.  I have studied with a Master Tailor - Mr. James "Gentleman Jim" MacFarland.  The knowledge obtained is displayed in my elegant timeless designs and the detailed construction of my garments/jewelry.  I am passing this knowledge on to the next generation by teaching classes to kids and seniors citizens (some have started a business).  I look forward to working with you on your vision.
