After pursuing a career in the business world, I decided to follow my passion and make a switch to fashion design. I design from my heart and soul; it comes from nowhere in a form of vision. I find inspiration from different sources, such as art, feelings, personal struggles, nature. I can design across different aesthetics. I prefer complicated designs and neutral colors. I chose the Knitwear specialization because it was the field I knew nothing about. It is the most challenging technically, extremely diverse, and the most sustainable. Being a knitwear designer gives me an opportunity not only to design the piece of clothing, but to be a fabric designer as well.
