Where are you from?
Woodland Park, New Jersey
How old are you?
What are some of your hobbies outside of school?
I just love exploring the city. I don’t live in New York, so when I’m here I love finding new places to eat and doing all the fun things it offers.
When and why did you become interested in fashion?
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved art and would have a pencil and paper in hand everywhere I went. My mother always made me and my sister’s Halloween costumes since I could remember. I would see her sewing and took a liking to it. She taught me how to sew and it just stayed with me ever since!
How would you describe your design aesthetic?
Very girly and feminine. I like to take inspiration from womenswear and translate it into a little girls’ wardrobe, always keeping it super cute.
Describe your inspiration for your senior collection.
My inspiration for my collection was a little bit of ballerina and a little bit of boho chic.
What size range are you doing and describe some of the pieces you are making. (skirt, dress, jacket, etc…)
I made one look that was a size 5 and one a size 10. My little one was a mauve/purple colored leather jacket and I hand quilted the sleeves and yoke. I made a soft pink silk charmeuse top and a multiple layered tulle skirt. My bigger style was an off white fur vest matched with a floral printed dress.
Who are you doing your senior internship with this semester?
I am actually interning with a bridal designer since special occasion was originally what I wanted to do. Her name is Hayley Paige. She’s a super chic, glitzy glam, not your boring traditional wedding dress designer.
I would love to stick with bridal or at least stay in children’s wear special occasion.
