I grew up knowing that I wanted to be a fashion designer. Coming from a family of artists, I was always creating and finding inspiration around me. I think that the clothes we wear are one of the highest forms of expression and one of the first things I notice about someone. I chose to be an intimate apparel designer because the relationship between intimates, and a person’s self-perception and love, is such a beautiful and fragile balance that needs to be cherished. My personal design aesthetic is constantly evolving to reflect the world around us. My goal as a designer will always be to create clothes that make everyone feel beautiful and confident.
