Belle of the Ball
From creating beautiful interiors for the home to one-of-a-kind clothing for dogs, fashion designer Janice Craig, of Belle Diva Couture, gives us the inside view. Find out how Shirley Temple inspired her, and why a canine wedding gown is one of her most poignant pieces.
Janice Craig has over 25 years of time spent working in the design industry in one form or another. With a formal education in interior design and art history she has used that knowledge in many arenas from painting in oils, acrylics, and water colors to sewing couture pet clothing to creating interiors for high end homes. Having a good knowledge of color and how to use fabrics and ornament is her secret to creations that are typically unusual and often one of a kind. Janice enjoys doing re-creation of human styles and especially costumes from famous movies for special events. She lives with her four yorkies in Wilmington and Charlotte, NC where she also does yorkie rescue work through her RescueNCYorkies group.
