Brittani Bumb is the Owner and Head designer for Untitled Thoughts, a local Georgia Clothing Brand focused on eco-friendly clothing. Brittani absolutely loves everything about nature-if she could live entirely outside, she probably would! Ever since she was young, clothing seemed to be an outlet for expressing her personality, and when she learned how to sew, nothing could slow her roll! To her, clothing represents a form of freedom and expression of confidence, all of which Brittani wants other women to feel when they wear one of her pieces. Brittani also strives to put an eco-green stamp of approval on as many sewing practices as she can. You can find Brittani's clothing at local boutiques such as Coco + Mischa and Indie South in Athens, Ga. Brittani also loves to keep herself busy sewing up custom wedding dresses, teaching private lessons from her home studio, and working with a number of local studios to offer sewing & dyeing workshops. Brittani has a BFA in Fashion Design from SCAD.
