With a variety of educational background ranging from Fine Arts, Psychology and even Automotive Technologies, she had dedicated her self in the Fashion as a Fine Art division. In reference to her work; “Creating is not a matter of marketing or producing a piece of merchandise, but a matter of artist whimsy. To develop a costume is to engulf one’s self into the every nostalgic moment, to capture that zeitgeist in time as if it were a photograph, the poetic melancholy of being able the live in that time period with the simple viewing of pieced together fabric.” In regards to the fashion show in May, she will have works referencing, the Story of the Pied Piper and the very well know French Incroyables!
