My name is Rosalee Rester and I am the maker behind the designs you see on this website. The styles are designed in-house, cut and sewn to order in Portland, Oregon.
You Can StayTM Designs arise from a desire to express my love of life and my admiration of how it manifests in physical form. I want to wrap my awe around each individual person I see.
I strive to help each person gain sight of their own beauty that shines its brightest when we feel comfortable and are allowed artistic self-expression without judgement.
People often ask where the name came from. It is derived from my name Rester, which from French translates to stay. You can read more about the naming journey here.
What makes this brand so unique is that each piece is individually made to order allowing for a great deal of customization. We carry tons of designer fabrics. We also hand press our own designs onto fabric right here in our studio. Each piece is unique and made for you.
This means you can call or email me to tell me about your deep love of four legged animals or vinyl or Steve Buscemi or the Steel bridge and I can print and sew your love into a dress, or pant, or skirt, or shirt in your size.
You Can StayTM Clothing is unique in how it imagines and creates the pieces you wear and the level of customer participation in the making of your own garments.
