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 Fall | Winter 2017 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.
