Paresa Paiva-Vanderhoop

New York

My design aesthetic is to keep in mind the woman of everywhere, every culture, and every means and to remember that there is always inspiration in the world in that we are all connected in some way. My motivation is the fact that there is always change in the intimate apparel industry that someone somewhere would like to see. Tied to my drive is my constant learning from mistakes, the fact that I regularly find myself to be more resilient than I had thought, and my burgeoning ability to block negativity from corrupting my imagination. I hope for the same for others of good intention.
