Without having everything at my disposal, I’ve learned what is truly essential in my art and I've learned how to hand-craft every design myself.

Why Patreon:

Much of the work you see on my public accounts has been created through the generosity of the creative community through collaborations or was the result of fortunate placement via stylists.

My background is modest (a story I'll tell in time) — and since I was a teenager I've taken on odd jobs for personal funding such as public school tutoring, sales work at the mall, and tailoring here and there. Eventually, I began creating pieces for private clients. But with my competition in the fashion industry vastly changing the value of clothing among other unjust systems in place, it has been tricky sustaining my work.

Your support and the support of the curious, creative minded community of Patrons will allow me to explore design and thought more freely, dive into new art movements, up the ante on future shoots/projects/collaborations, and more than anything offer inspiration, guidance, and support to my Patrons.


We all have it within us to be creative.
I am determined to remind you of that.

A little about myself:

I'm 28 years old and I’ve been an independent fashion designer for the past 6 years.

Without the benefit of great wealth or inheritance, I’ve learned to be resourceful and honed a more original sense of design. This distinctiveness is a product of years of reflection, wonderment, turmoil, joy, and finding inspiration while seeking to better know what compels me.

Much of my early artistic skill was learned through trial and error, with basic training in clothing construction and fashion merchandising at my local community college. I’ve since experimented on my own, sharpening techniques that reflect in my high-end tailoring as well as my unconventional approach to fashion.

Without having everything at my disposal, I’ve learned what is truly essential in my art and I've learned how to hand-craft every design myself. 




You have all that you need within you:
Through Patreon, I want to break down barriers in the Creative Industry.

Barriers that tell you-you are not capable of creating the designs in your mind without an expensive degree, without knowing the right people, or if you aren't cruel and cut-throat.

It's a common misconception for people to see my work and think I'm much much older, or not an individual but rather a prominent design house as I make detailed custom-tailored luxury apparel. But for the time being it is really just me with occasional seamstress assistance here and there (and of course the kindness of friends and family).
I did not start out with connections, and I was not taught how to create the dresses I am known for. Following the basics skills I learned —

I challenged myself,
I observed,
I practiced,
and I did not stop.
You have it in you to do the same.


So this is for the budding designers, the artists, the curious, the dreamers.
I hope you will join me.
