Front view of complete look, consisting of a bishop sleeve wool sweater, rib knit vest, and stretch-knit pants. The three pieces total 3,740 beads and 1,105 bobby/roller pins. The bucket bag is embellished with 70 silver studs.

A mix of semi-precious, bugle, and seed beads. Roller pins dangle from the beaded loops. Bobby pins line the collar while the rollers line the hem/cuff.

This image highlights the semi-precious beads sewn alongside the pants. I also made the pump heel prototype. The circle motif fabrication on the heel matches the bucket bag.

This clip captures the sweater and vest while illuminated. Ultimately, the whole look took approximately 60 hours to complete and I loved every second of it.

Daydreamer, Believer, Creator. These are the words that I embody. Designing for me is a cathartic experience, designing is healing, designing is powerful. In my mind, I am able to fantasize infinite possibilities. Possibilities that may even change the world of fashion, save the planet, or even make a difference in someone else’s life. I believe in my ideals and I believe I can do it. My design aesthetic is dressy sportswear to special occasion. What is unique to me as a person and a designer, is my ability to bond with my concepts and garments. My creations are an extension of me. I create art.
