Dawn Mabee


A fashion arts graduate with many years fashion/retail industry experience and the creator/ designer of Mabee Baby lounge wear for little ones.

The bulk of my previous fashion industry experience has come from my years at Lace Embrace Atelier. Located in Vancouver, Lace Embrace is one of the top corset labels in the world. As Assistant Manager/Head Seamstress I worked very closely with the designer to produce Victorian and Edwardian inspired custom corsets.
After some years away I returned part time in a variety of roles for Lace Embrace for the last two years.

My past work experience has brought me alot of fashion related exposure. Most recently three years as sample cutter at Zonda Nellis Designs in Vancouver, Canada. Prior to that a year of work aboard the Queen Mary 2 in the Hermes/Formal shop. There I was responsible for the merchandising as well as all day to day retail details. It was a very fast paced and demanding environment, which I thrived in.
Before going to sea I put my skills in sewing and selling to good use at one of the only labels designed and produced in Edinburgh, Scotland, Totty Rocks.

My work for smaller companies has allowed me to use a wide range of skills in a intimate setting. I am detail oriented, creative, passionate about fashion and always in search for more ways to grow my creative side.

Thank you for taking time to learn more about me.
