My love for fashion came at a young age although I don’t have a family background of sewers and seamstress or an inspirational story on how this love for fashion started. Something “burst” within me and I became drawn to fashion since the age of ten. However, I never knew how to express this passion. It wasn’t until the age of 15 that I had my first encounter with a sewing machine and learned how to sew. I am a lover of haute couture techniques, embellishments, and beading. I am passionate about the process that brings a garment to life and sets it apart, whether it’s through the fabric or by hand manipulation. I appreciate the dedication and hard work that goes into creating these designs. I would love to one day work in the bridal/special occasion industry, making everyone women feel confident and beautiful.
