“Showing at the Nolcha Shows gives me a great opportunity to get my designs seen.  It’s also special to me to have been an intern last year and to be showing my collection this year.”

 

BACKGROUND

My background is in styling and costume design. I was a professional dancer in NYC. Dancers have so much style and I think that helped influence my unique designs.

 

VISION

My vision is for this collection is inspired by global warming and its effects on human evolution. How do we evolve? How does the earth affect our day to day fashions, lifestyle and architecture.

 

SIGNATURE STYLE

My signature style is Street Wear Separates. I love things that are unisex and try not to focus so much on what’s mens or women’s. I love street fashion and think all style and design stems from there. It’s what I know best. I like to keep people guessing and I always showcase a full look (hat, Jewlery and layering).

 

INFLUENCE

My influence comes from art. All shapes and forms of art is my passion. I was a professional dancer therefore I like to incorporate details and lots and lots of Attitude in my clothes.

 

BRAND PHILOSOPHY

My brand philosophy is feel special! Feel sexy and most of all try something new.

 

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

If I could dress any “celebrity” it would have to be another designer. I think that having another designer love and wear you’re clothes is the ultimate compliment!
