Why

Skating Design by Beth was created back in 2015. After getting into figure skating in middle school and being outraged at the price of a competition dress, much less one that met my high expectations of fit and look, I came to the only logical conclusion: I would have to make my own. Slowly but surely I found myself making dresses for not only myself, but everyone at the rink. What had started as me avoiding spending money quickly became an obsession and I started to design and create dresses for people across the East Coast. Even now as I study product design at Carnegie Mellon University, I can't bare to stop designing for figure skating. I love what I do and hope that my business can continue to provide figure skaters with affordable custom dresses for years to come. 


Design Process

The design process of creating a custom piece centers around the wants and needs of the individual skater. It is vital that I take a user-centered approach and work one on one with an individual to turn their vision into a reality.
