I grew up in one of the largest apparel markets in the world, which I believe has impacted and molded who I am today. I enjoy simplicity, minimalism, and clothing styles that provide the wearer with not only comfort but also long life. 

The concept behind my senior thesis collection really has a lot to do with my personality. I consider myself and my style to be more daring, fearless, and unique. This collection is meant to boost confidence in females of this generation and to push them to be more innovative. 

Some examples of the materials I use include 3M geometrical pattern, metal silk, Nitrocellulose silk, warp fiber, and cire satine. The collection represents a sense of fearlessness, confidence, and individualism through the use of bold colors and vibrance.
