What are you inspired by?
I am heavily inspired by music and the different eras of our time. I can take a favorite song or time period and really break them down to give me my next inspiration.
What is your favorite part of the design process?
My favorite part of the design process is figuring out what features I am going to include into my garment such as trims, colors and techniques. I've experimented with screen printing, embroidery, patchwork and much more that have shown some great results.
Who is your favorite designer?
I don't really keep up with any designer but I do like Raf Simons' work. He does a good job of creating high end fashion that has a good grasp of the youth.
What is your dream job?
I really love working with denim in general but would love to work for a men's wear line or have my own business.
Hobbies outside of fashion design?
My hobbies include going to the gym, working on my old car and creating anything with my hands.
What are your plans after graduation?
My plans after graduation include finding a cool job and starting the rest of my life!
What I have learned/advice I’d give to other design students:
I believe that being true to yourself is important. There's way too many people out there living for other people or material things
