So if you had the choice of all fashion designers in the world to work with, who would that person be?
#1 Issey Miyake. I love the way he pushes the boundaries of fashion. His designs are like candy for the eyes. #2 Alexander McQueen he knew how to tell a story with his collections no matter how harsh it is.
What is your greatest accomplishment as a designer?
Getting my first client was a big deal for me. It was a black and white evening gown. The next big deal was when I showed my designs at Baltimore Fashion Week. That was the first time I ever showed my designs other than in my hometown of Cincinnati.
Do you prefer ready-to-wear or concept when it comes to your runway shows?
What were your inspirations for the designed you created for the Fashion Umbrella NYFW Debut?
I saw an abstract painting named 'Tango' by Alicia Dunn. I loved the mix of colors and the lines Since color is the is my driving force to create, I had to implement that in my collection.
Fashion is a way of communicating to the world your emotions, personality and point of view without saying a word.
What markets and demographic do you cater to?
Prom/evening for high school girls. Stylish women who love a classic style but still needs a sense of adventure in their overall look. ( Career, Entrepreneur)
