I design because fashion is a huge part of my life; as a matter of fact it is my life! I remember that when I was growing up I would always picture an outfit in my head just from seeing a random object or a movie scene. Then I would try for months or even years to find it somewhere and could never find it. Even though that process was annoying, it taught me that I am pretty good at forecasting, thinking of designs before they become an actual trend. And this began my involvement with fashion. My specialization is sportswear. I chose it because of my design aesthetic, which is high-end streetwear. I love anything from jeans and tracksuits to corsets and gowns. I love mixing masculine and feminine details by making garments that are usually for men with sex appeal. Design is my passion and design is me.
