What are you inspired by?

I get inspiration for my designs from everyday things that are happening in the world. My senior collection focuses on bringing awareness to sex trafficking through the world of fashion. It's really important for me that my designs have meaning and a message behind it.

What is your favorite part of the design process?

My favorite part of the design process is the sewing and the actual making of the garment, because in this stage you finally get to see your design come to life.

Who is your favorite designer?

My favorite designer at the moment is Michael Costello, I really enjoy his effortless designs and how he makes he's clients feel sexy yet elegant.

What is your dream job?

My dream job is to have my own business where I can create my own line and I would like to do custom work as well.

Hobbies outside of fashion design?

My hobbies outside of fashion include binge watching series on Netflix, hanging out with friends, eating, and drinking Starbucks ( I drink it religiously, so I guess you can call it a hobby).

What are your plans after graduation?

After graduation I will have time to focus on starting my business, and hopefully have a job on the side to support my start up.

 

What matters to me as a person and a fashion designer is that I am able to bring awareness to issues that are going on around the world. It's very important to me that I design with a purpose and that my garments have a story and a meaning behind it so that I'm not just focus on making just another pretty dress.
