Drop waist bubble hem gown created from moiré brocade fabric. Photographed at Plaice Cove Beach, NH.
Inspired by dancing waves of light on the ocean floor, the satin ribbons within the moiré fabric mimic the refraction of light.
The fabric was precisely draped over the bodice to eliminate seam lines and enhance the beauty of the moiré.
Hand beaded hibiscus flower appliqué details. These appliqués were created from duchess satin, glass seed beads, and iridescent bugle beads.

Meet the Designer
Choosing the path of art and design is like choosing to display your authentic self to the world 24/7. It can be terrifying, but it’s also the most rewarding feeling. Every time I create a new piece it’s as if the world is getting a little glimpse into my mind. When someone looks at my designs, I want a feeling to be evoked and inspiration to be sparked. Textile manipulation is a technique I use frequently in my designs, and elements like color, texture, and depth are tools I use to achieve that feeling. From the time I was young, I always had an affinity for the arts and when my grandmother taught me to sew, I realized fashion was wearable art. It’s how you can show who you are to the world without ever having to say a word; fashion is a beautiful language.
