“Fabric is a rebel without a cause—I give it cause!”

I am drawn to taking opposing elements that, in theory, sound unorthodox and pair them together. This year my inspiration has derived from subcultures, art movements and historical costume. I lean towards a romantic aesthetic, but there is always a twist! My passion is textiles. I love combining handmade techniques with progressive technology and creating a union between the future and the past.
My goal is to design for a label that embraces both traditional and pioneering design techniques; a brand with ethical practices and forward
thinking ideologies.
