Turning Dreams into Fashion & Couture
As a little girl who grew up surrounded by the nostalgic love of America, I fell head over heels for the times gone by, and all the classic vintage trends they left behind. Fashion was always my best medium for expressing my passions as it not only fueled my dreams and ambitions but also paved the way for my success. I realized that I wanted to design clothes for women who actively and passionately sought playful sophistication, followed their dreams and kicked ass!
After high school, I attended FIT, and later went on to continue my education in fashion at FIDM. Throughout my years of dreaming, learning, and designing, the bold sensuality and timeless beauty of the pin-up culture always remained at the heart of my inspirations. Truth be told, I adore every aspect about fashions during the 1950s and the 1970s, there's something to be said for the glamor from those periods. I seek to create designs that are inspired by timeless styles rather than fleeting trends.
I always harbored the dream of manufacturing my goods in a factory in the US, so my exclusively curated designs would read ‘Made in America’. These three worlds always seemed like a magic spell, and I was immensely lucky to find the perfect team in downtown Los Angeles.
To most, a team consisting of ten workers may not seem much, but it was just the perfect arrangement I sought to create designs that redefined the standards of quality, broke away from fleeting runway trends and focused directly on consumer style. I want to create designs that remind us of the magic inside us and that we must dress up for the life that we wish to lead!
I believe in finding happiness, looking good and adding some sparkle to our lives.
