What are you inspired by?

I often find myself drawing inspiration from music and nature in my designs.

What is your favorite part of the design process?

Fashion design has helped me grow in numerous ways and I have a new appreciation and respect for the design process. It's always been difficult for me to choose which part of the design process is my favorite, but I have to say that making the actual garment and seeing your sketches and patterns come to life is definitely the most exciting and rewarding.

Hobbies outside of fashion design?

My biggest passions other than design and fashion are music and the beautiful outdoors. Nothing makes me feel as alive as seeing some of my favorite artists live or exploring stunning places the Earth has to offer.

What are your plans after graduation?

After graduation I plan to start out in the fashion corporate world to learn more about that side of fashion while building my brand on the side. Eventually I would like to have my own fashion business using recycled fabrics and waste to help conserve our planet. A portion of the proceeds made through my company will then be donated to charity. I am passionate about saving our Mother Earth and helping those in need and doing so through fashion is the dream!
