Modesty and respect for our bodies through fashion
From a young age, Sabina Kasprzak was drawn to fashion and beauty. She spent a lot of her schooling life preparing for a future in fashion design. But after what Sabina describes as a "monumental setback", she had to reassess her dreams in this field. After some time away, she came back renewed and filled with purpose: to ensure that every woman is able to tap into their feminine genius and show off their unique personality and nature through the clothes they wear.
In this episode, Sabina and I talk about how she got her start in fashion, the inspiration behind her brand House of Ladey, and the importance of modesty in our clothing choices and in fashion design.

"It's in our interest as women to choose clothes that the full story and that celebrate our entirety, not just one aspect of our femininity." — Sabina Kasprzak
Meet Sabina Kasprzak
Sabina Kasprzak was born in Vancouver, BC. At the age of eight, she moved to Poland, where she discovered and fell in love with the world of high-end European fashion after encountering a couture fashion show on TV. She was mesmerized by the beauty and grace of the creations floating down the runway and knew from that point on that she wanted to create that particular kind of beauty when she grew up. Ever since, a significant part of her heart and life has been dedicated to design.
At 17 she moved back to Canada, and following high school pursued a Fashion Design Diploma at the University of the Fraser Valley. In her graduating year of the program, Sabina qualified as a finalist in the Smirnoff Fashion Awards International Competition in Toronto, and later that year, received the Most Creative Designer of the Year Award for her graduation collection—Style of Edge. After graduation, she took a detour from fashion, and earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication at Trinity Western University.
Since then, she has qualified as a semi-finalist, in the Oskary Fashion Awards Competition in Warsaw (Poland) in 2005 and 2009. Sabina was also selected as a semi-finalist in the casting for the Amazon Prime 'Making the Cut' series in 2019.
Sabina presently works full time in a marketing profession, and in her spare time, keeps her passion for cultivating beauty in fashion alive, by creating custom designs for private clients. She specializes in high-end ladies’ wear, and considers meticulous attention to detail, the pursuit of beauty, and a love for working with luxurious fabrics, a key element of her design aesthetic. Her goal in every dress she creates is to instill confidence, evoke beauty, convey strength and reconfirm women in their inherent value, dignity and purpose.
