About

With limited resources at my disposal, over the past 10 years, I learned the basics, then developed my own techniques to hand-craft the designs you see before you


Why Patreon?

I'm a girl from a working-class family whose work has been powered by the kindness of friends & family and stubborn resilience.

Much of the work you see has been created through the generosity of the creative community, through collaborations, or funded by every bit of income I've received through the years. 


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.



About Me:

I'm 29 years old, have 11 years of design experience, and have run my own independent label for the past 7 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. 

I've been illustrating my whole life, but barely knew how to sew at the age of 18, but in time my skills grew and my name spread through word of mouth and I began creating pieces for private clients, celebrities, & commercial productions.

Without having everything at my disposal, I’ve learned what is truly essential in my art and I've learned how to translate that into luxury apparel. 

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



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 accepted challenges,
I experienced failure,
I observed,
I practiced,
and to this day I never stopped.

You have it in you to do the same.

So this is for the makers, the dreamers, the artists, and those who are beautifully curious at heart...
I welcome you to join me.
