FOF Graduates Collection
I design because making things gives me a sense of satisfaction and purpose like no other. I have always viewed fashion as a powerful mode of self expression. When you choose your clothes, you decide this element of how the world perceives you. It’s always been a tool for me to show my personality to the world and I want to share that with others. I am unique because my thought process is a balance of the creative and the analytical. Knitwear ties into this well because it’s all about combining beauty with fabric and stitch structure. My aesthetic is feminine, chic, and forward thinking with a nod to retro. My designs always involve juxtaposition, whether it’s about blending the past and future, or volume and structure. I have a deep appreciation for vintage clothing and fashion history that definitely colors everything I design. I love knitwear design because it’s wonderful to build a garment from the yarn up. It’s not just about the silhouette, but also includes elements of surface and print design. I love to incorporate overt texture and surface interest in my designs.
