L O O K I N G  I N   S/S  2017

 A collection inspired by looking within oneself to find their inner truth.  Our souls recognition of a greater pursuit of ‘finding oneself’.  For me this means allowing yourself to be vulnerable to the interpretation of others.  To put oneself out there both psychically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.  Looking in to find inner truth and ultimate peace.

  The inner examination is demonstrated thru the designer’s use of textiles.  Specifically, her use of laser cut leather.  The holes and punctures allow for a sense of feeling exposed.  The woman who wears these pieces is up to the task of putting herself ‘out there’.

FLYING OVER YOU   S/S  2015

Idea that everyone has a 'hard to penetrate' outer shell, but as you get to know them, you can peel away layers to reveal a softer inner core.  Or rather the person sheds a layer like giving a gift, to the other. Like a piece of fruit that you peal to get to the part that you can consume.   The core is reached when greater wisdom takes over.
