Thanks for visiting my portfolio!
Creativity has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Growing up in a household full of seamstresses, gathering the fabric scraps that fell under the sewing table and fastening them around my dolls at the age of 5, I developed a love for garment construction and design. I took this love with me to college and obtained my BFA focusing on Fashion Design from The Art Institute of California San Francisco in 2009. Since I have graduated, I have specified which areas allow me to fully embrace my creativity. Women's Bridalwear, Evening, and Costuming are the areas in which I find the most pleasure and satisfaction designing with an unlimited amount of artistic techniques.
My Design Styles:
- Bridal: Affordable couture is my motto. I like to embrace the intricacy of elegant details and textures onto a visualy appealing bodice structure. Materials include lace fabric, lace appliques, lace trims, beading, pearls, crystals, Satin, Chiffon, and a whole lot of tulle. I design for the dramatic Bride who strives for her enchnted grand entrance on her wedding day.
- Eveningwear: Sexy, sophisticated, luxurious, and one of a kind. My Evening garments bring out the suttle queen within the woman. I design from a range of business evening to ballroom.
-Costume: No limits. From Anime to Sci-Fi, I can design character based garments of populare characters or made up ones. We all have a character inside of us and the personal character designs allow the individual to visually release aspects of their own personality.
Additional Creative Hobbies:
In addition to garment designing and construction, I have acquired the hobby of Cold Process Soap making and Body products. This is the traditional method of soapmaking dating back to when cooks churned their own butter. My Cold Process Soaps are all vegan friendly, meaning that no animal based ingredients, such as Lard, are used within the compound of the Base Oils and no products are tested on animals.
