Growing up with art and performance art around me 24/7, I wanted to do something as early as 2nd grade that would give me the liberty to always change. Fashion is an art that expects change and invites exploring new themes and I can still bring with me what I value from the past.
I love to see my clients transform into my work. All of my designs have meaning behind them and the trills that there are messages that are out there in the world through clothing and textiles is a feeling of great accomplishment that elevates me to want todo more.
I can design for the many uses of clothing that humans have; ready to ware, entertainment, business, spa, uniforms, evening, workout and the list goes on.
Fashion also has the photo shoots, displays, runways, hair, makeup, marketing and editorial. The teams of talent that I get to meet and work with is wonderful. I love working with the many personalities of different seamstresses, pattern makers, textile industry, graphic designers, sales reps and back stage help heros.
Fashion is filled with many teams players that accomplish one look, a capsule collection or a huge complete season collection and this orchestration is one huge family that I get to visit from time to time.
