As a recent Columbia College Chicago graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Fashion Design, one of my first priorities when designing is impact. I draw inspiration from the earth’s natural environments and aim to bring attention to them through my designs. As a fashion designer with a love for prints and color, my designs mend a streetwear perspective with boldness and versatility. My designs typically incorporate contemporary silhouettes, functionality, and unexpected details.
After graduation, I have been working as an assistant technical designer for Weissman’s Dancewear Solutions. As a member of their dancewear and performance team, my work focuses on perfecting their athleisure products for their customer. I work directly with the graphic design team, sourcing team, and international vendors to bring products to life, meet deadlines, and maintain effective cross functional communication. This position has fine toothed my design skillsets and has taught me production processes from start to finish.
My work has been showcased in the Driehaus Design Initiative fashion show and Chicago’s Spring/Summer Fashion Week, and has been published in two 10 page spreads in Elegant Magazine.
