I design for my love of it. I’ve always wanted to be a fashion designer for as long as I can remember. Growing up with five older sisters ignited my love of fashion, and the desire to dress very different women. I like to design with diversity in mind, the garments in my collections are for anyone and everyone. I chose the sportswear specialization because of the total versatility of the category, there are no limitations to what you can create in sportswear. I think my design aesthetic could be seen as a wearable ‘Science Fiction costume. I take a lot of inspiration from great Sci-Fi books, films, and art.
