As I was growing up, I would always come up with creative ideas and run to get the paper to jot them down. Still to this day I have notes on my phone for ideas, fashion, or whatever. I chose fashion design because in high school I learned how to sew. It was very rewarding to see my sketches come to life. I think that there is an opportunity to grow with sustainability in the fashion industry as well. The childrenswear specialization brought back my spark and inspired me to think outside the box. Being in childrenswear taught me to stay true to myself. My design aesthetic can be described as modern and versatile. As a designer, my aesthetic is still developing. I enjoy challenging myself through design by combining functionality with interesting silhouettes.
