About me
I am an innovative Fashion Designer with who loves creating powerful designs to hopefully change the fashion industry. Adept in collaborating with designers and other team professionals to achieve high goals and deadlines. Bringing forth a true love of fashion and design. Offering strong decision-making skills and the ability to work effectively with vendors and other creative professionals. My skills include sewing, figure drawing an high level of understanding for fabrics and how they work and construction. I believe my designs are refreshing bold and not yet discovered. As well as working on my personal fashion brand, i have had the experience of working with models around the country in styling and photography. These experiences allowed me to work on my directing skills in terms of shooting with live models and also building my image work
