As a graduate of Otis College, my determination has helped me evolve as a designer, contributing as a team player and communicator. My strong leadership qualities allow me to work and generate ideas effectively. I have a passion for fashion and a keen eye for color, and most importantly, I am always open to learning from others to further myself as a designer.
Botanical Rhapsody is a spring collection inspired by botanical gardens and leaves. Also using streetwear and soft tailoring as key elements for design. With this as my inspiration, I wanted to play with fabric print, laser cutting and draping in order to create a collection with a bold statement.
