MY NAME IS Haley Tucker and I'm the designer behind Only Child, a line of unique basics made start to finish in my small Oakland studio. Born from a desire for wardrobe workhorses, I make each Only Child piece with durability, versatility, and a dash of personality in mind.
I started Only Child in 2015 after becoming frustrated with my wardrobe. I would buy and buy and somehow still come up empty handed when I tried to get dressed every morning. I was addicted to the fast fashion cycle of buying quick fix pieces for my closet only to be disappointed when they inevitably fell apart or quickly were no longer on trend.
I set out on a mission for my dream closet and started sewing. I wanted the pieces that every cool girl in all of my art classes seemed to naturally own: simple but unique pieces that always came with an interesting backstory.
For each collection, I draw on the classic silhouettes from past decades, give them a modern twist, and produce them in fabrics that are designed to last. When I make a piece that fits into your life seamlessly and makes your morning that much easier, that's when I know I've made something worth holding on to.
