House of Chelsea B is a custom crochet apparel brand that originated out of the South-side of Chicago, IL. As a recent graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Chelsea Billingsley earned her B.F.A in surface design and textiles with a minor in fashion design. Her passion for art began at a young age. However, it was not until attending SCAD that she discovered her true passion for fiber arts. This is where she combined her tactile skills with her illustrative qualities to create unique works of art.
Chelsea has always had a love for fashion and fine art but it was not until she picked up her first crochet hook that her creations were brought to life. In 2017 she began her own studio practice, Chelsea B Creations ( now known as House of Chelsea B), where she focuses on combining streetwear fashion and the skill of crochet.
Billingsley's work has been featured in 8 art exhibitions, including 7 located in Savannah, GA. Her most recent features were in the 2018 AESTHETIC Market art show, SCAD’s 2019 Fibers Open Studio, the 2019 Chicago Fashion Week show, and a featured artist/instructor at Nike Lab’s Student Workshop December 2019.
Most recently, House of Chelsea B adorned rap artist Flo Milli in Refinery Magazine’s January 2021 feature , as well as, on the up and coming rap artist Yung Baby Tate in the “I AM” music March 2021.

Billingsley's mission is to change the narrative of crochet. You literally can create anything, including a career in fashion with the yarn and a hooked needle.
