I design because I want more women to feel confident and beautiful. I believe that fashion is a way to express who you are and represents your values. When I was younger I would design all the outfits I couldn’t afford but soon it transformed into helping other women connect with themselves through fashion. My desire to create my own brand is what made me continue fashion throughout high school leading to college. At FIT I was able to explore, be open to new things, and find my aesthetic. I consider my designs to be very elegant, wearable, modern and high-end sportswear. To conclude, I find inspiration from my Mexican culture and my parents. Being born of immigrant parents has taught me to always feel proud of where my parents are from.
