I believe clothing should embody a heightened self that allows the wearer to escape into a room of their own, where one can express their authentic self or the person they long to become.

I have never wanted to create clothing that is gender specific.  The vision I have of myself and my creations is a future of in-betweenness, where feminine and masculine forms and attitudes respectively co-exist. 

I wish to create versatile pieces that speak not to a gender but to an emotion or sensibility, a clothing influenced by global silhouettes that combines bold shapes and a modern palette with soft draping and sharp tailoring.
