Creating things has always been in my nature. I gravitated toward fashion design because it can encompass all the aspects of art that I love in a tangible, wearable display of self-expression. I have always loved to draw and I love incorporating this passion into my designs, whether it be painting or drawing directly on my garments or using a drawing as a template for intricate beading or embroidery. I chose Sportswear because I feel that I can combine elements of all design disciplines, leaving all doors open. I consider my aesthetic to be dreamy and energetic with an emphasis on storytelling.In my designs, I am focused on using only upcycled materials, including deadstock, or deconstructed thrifted or vintage garments.
