THESIS COLLECTION, FA18- SP19
Where nature meets the street.
Ready-to-wear inspired by the protection and perseverance of nature in everyday urbanity. Mix and match separates use found fabrics, zero waste patterning and couture details, while color and layers effortlessly blur seasons and genders.
Re-thinking single-use bridal wear.
Challenging the traditional white dress while keeping a feel for the romantic aesthetic. Separates that can be worn in a variety of ways, during the event and for years to come. Lined with silk and using deep darts and strategic cuts to avoid traditional boning or padding lends a luxurious sensuality and the freedom to breathe deeply, hug freely and feel the significance of the metamorphosis.
UNEASY BEAUTY, SP18
Examining connections between fashion production excess and the rising ocean levels.
Drowning physically and mentally in climates both environmental and cultural. A dress evoking ocean waves and tides rising to the point of drowning, bondage and strangulation.
Asked to walk in the Fuller Craft Museum exhibit, SP18.
TEXTILE DESIGN, FA17
DON’T GO… WATERFALLS
Exploring textile design, digital printing and use of color and scale.
Memories of a lush Hawaiian waterfall- earthy, tropical, repetitive, pungent- led to a floral that isn’t too flowery, a dress flowing but strong.
Sophomore piece selected to walk in Sr Fashion Show and VIP event, SP17.
