Extra Extra Read All About Me


HELLO! and welcome. My name is Allison and I am the owner of Westware. Where do I begin? Not to be dramatic but It all started when I was born... Okay not really but I was very interested in fashion from an early age. I would try and think of new ways to make materials and upcycle thrift store garments. It was a whole thing. The problem was, I had no idea where to go with it or how to make a feasible business plan. So I went to college for graphic design and had a minor in consumer marketing. Okay great. After graduation, I got a job like any normal grad is hoping to do (especially if you graduate with an art related degree). After working for a couple years, a global pandemic hit and I was stuck quarantined inside like literally the entire world. It was great for a few weeks. Working from home, eating snacks in bed all day, not speaking to anyone. When suddenly it hit me, I was being a real POS. So I decided to do a little research on how to make my childhood dream come true and BAM here we are. That's what happens when you have an unfulfilled dream and too much time on your hands I guess. Anyway, I created Westware for the unapologetically unique. Imma let ya'll in on a little secret, for a long time I was very afraid to be myself. I know I can't be alone in this, right? Right?!?! Finally I am currently making an ongoing decision to let my guard down and let Real Allison™ out, and I would encourage you guys to do the same. We're in this together after all! Life, that is. So I hope you feel at home here. I'll be posting some stuff on instagram (@west.ware) that might be helpful to you. In the meantime, have a look around the shop and I hope you find some looks that make you feel like the realest version of yourself. Cheers!
