Intimate Apparel

I fell head over heels in love with New York City, fashion, and FIT while going back and forth between the city and the Connecticut suburbs.  I was six years old when I first started visiting the Museum at FIT, knowing full well this is what I wanted to do. Here you can wear whatever you feel like and no one will question you. Fashion is a way to express who you are to the world in the simplest way. I design to empower and compliment women. I chose intimate apparel to amplify women’s sex appeal. Designing to create confidence in raw, intimate moments where you can feel vulnerable. Establishing women to know their true worth. I create to make a bold statement using intricate laces and hand-beaded touches while focusing on a modern take of intimate apparel by mixing in evening wear elements.
