About the Designer

THE DESIGNER: The design journey for me has been one of learning, personal growth and adventure.  I start this journey at the young age of 13. Now at 16, I continue to grow and know that I can go anywhere it takes me. I know that this talent is a gift that I am blessed to have and I will use it to fulfill a greater purpose by making a difference in the lives of others. Fall of 2010 found me in NYC being revealed to the fashion world and gave me the confidence to pursue my dreams and never look back.Various designers in the industry have recognized my design work and have served as incredible mentors to me. Being involved in the whole design process and knowing my product from the inside out allows me to design a high-quality design that I am proud to share with my clients. Each design is a part of who I am and I love bringing my design inspirations to life. Now that I am in my new design studio in Chattanooga, TN, I have an amazing space to bring all my designs to reality. It is truly a dream come true!

COLOR: “I love color. Color inspires me to create. I envision color on my designs as I sketch them but don’t limit myself in that process.”

FABRIC: “As I choose a fabric, I think of its endless possibilities: how it will feel being worn, how it will move, how I can sculpt it to what I envision.”

TEXTURE:“Texture affects the mood of my dress designs.”

A SUCCESSFUL DESIGN:“For me, a well-executed look comes straight from my heart and has my mark on it. It’s a great design when I can imagine myself wearing it and others want to wear it.”

BALANCE: “Education and knowledge are what open up the world and make everything possible. It is important to me that I have that balance between design work, school, friends and family.”

FAMILY: “My family is everything to me. They are my backbone, my support; they have made me who I am. They are my roots.”
