I believe clothing should embody an inner attitude,  where one can express their authentic self or the person they long to become.

The vision I have of myself and my creations is of in-betweenness, where feminine and masculine forms 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 with bold shapes, a modern color palette and soft draping combined with fitted tailoring.
