“This will be my second time showing with the Nolcha Shows.  Everyone is incredibly organized, which is fundamental when orchestrating a production of this caliber.  Even though they are huge contenders in the game, the staff are all very pleasant and easy to work with no ego.  Their show packages include everything you may need to produce a show, at an economical price.”

 

BACKGROUND

VISION

 

My vision is to create garments made of elevated, natural fabrications for the modern, working woman.    I work directly with factories that practice proper industry standards, and I try hard to lessen the amount of hands that go into creating each piece in order to make it price conscious for the customer, without sacrificing the quality.  I am interested in creating my own sustainable fabrics, which I plan to debut for my collection.

 

SIGNATURE STYLE

 

Feminine, easy silhouettes, made with lux fabrics that easily transition from day to evening.
My girl appreciates classic, modern,  and minimalistic shapes, with feminine sensibilities.

 

INFLUENCE

 

I am strongly influenced by my travels and by different cultures.  I also draw inspiration from art, which reflects in my fabric choices.
I like to feature prints from international, print makers that feel organic and not manufactured.
I also love to take ideas from vintage items and silhouettes, and interpret them for the modern woman.

 

BRAND PHILOSOPHY

 

I like to dress a young, working professional who is less concerned about quantity and more concerned about quality and the longevity of a garment.   She never requires to be the center of attention, but gracefully makes her presence known.

 

IF YOU COULD DRESS ANY CELEBRITY, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

 

 I would be honored to dress Jennifer Hudson.  Aside from being brilliantly talented, she is poised and beautiful, with a charming personality.
