Cledgy Customs embodies class , edge and customization… hence the name. “Im all about embracing who you are, loving what you see in the mirror and not walking around looking like everybody else. Everybody is wearing the same thing. Nobody is different anymore,” says Dorn.
In five years, Dorn says that her brand will be worldwide and we’ll see it on red carpets. “You’re going to be seeing it everywhere. It’s going to be one of those brands. Timeless. It’s never going to go out of style. It’s going to be classic designs. You can get use out of it and you won’t get tired of wearing it,” says Dorn. It was an honor to have her showcase during PSBFW Couture show.
