My name is Shannon Ashford and I sew. I was born and raised in Southern California too curious for my own good with the heart of a vagabond and a brain filled with movie quotes. My favorite color is yellow and I will make pancakes for anyone who asks. I learned to sew when I was a girl from a neighbor. I started waking up early to make myself an outfit to wear to school and even made a few prom dresses for friends in high school (my sincerest apologies for the rookie work). I make clothes for the same reason I drink whiskey and never wear shoes- it makes me happy. I started Tom Foolery to create problem-solving designs and to make people’s lives better. I chose jumpsuits because I truly believe they are the perfect manifestation of the energy and adventure of a tomboy packaged as a classy lady.
