I've always been passionate about creating a fashion story visually through developed concepts. Creative direction is where I see myself within the fashion industry. I consider myself a conceptual designer. Taking the more conceptual route when creating a piece tends to flourish into infinite dimensions as new ideas become attached to my work and broaden even further. The best part about the creation process is finding peace in the direction that unfolds, organic free-flowing mentality that mimics within the art resulting in exciting, innovative and new outcome.
