Meet the Designer
No medium has hypnotized me like the manipulation of fabric. Fabric provides possibilities that I love exploring and has such an important purpose in society. It connects designers to everybody in the world and I want to feel connected. I design for the female figure; it fascinates me. I have always had an appreciation for clothing and fashion and, as a young girl, I designed and sewed outfits for my dolls. My love for construction grew as I created costumes for cosplay, the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie, book, or game. I chose sportswear because it gave me the freedom to explore the more costumey aspects of design and construction. My design aesthetic has many forms and takes on several personalities, however, I always design with clean, precisely thought-out lines and silhouettes.
