Welcome to my website! I invite you to come in and click around. The one thing you will notice is that this is not an online store where you make a purchase and something is pulled from the inventory and shipped. Everything you see here is made to order and shipped when completed. Of course this means you may have a little wait; however you ALSO have a few options in almost anything shown. I've had an over 40 year career as a fashion designer, and the one thing I know is that we like "options." So I let my customers get in on the creative process.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you see something you want me to make for you!
Marva G. Ballard
Marva Ballard has been designing under the label M.G. Ballard Designs since 1982 and is known for her unique leather wearable art garments. Over the years, many celebrities and professional women and men have collected her pieces which have become statement items in their closets.
Scarves add a pop of pizzazz to any outfit! Want to add a point of interest to a simple black dress, toss on a scarf and own the look! Or, toss one over a power suit to enhance your personal statement. Because you don't have to worry about size, they make perfect gifts for many occasions.
Marva started designing leather wall-hangings and decorator pillows in 2002 for people who loved her art, but didn't want to necessarily wear it. M.G. Ballard Home is an extension of that with an expanded list of home decor items, including table linens, curtains and drapes, bedding, tapestries, wall paper, and murals.
