Recent graduate holding a BA in Design & Business from VIA UC with a specialization in Fashion Design. Passionate about crafting and creating, possessing extensive experience in the fashion design realm, particularly in product development and manufacturing. Proficient in utilizing industry-standard tools and methodologies. Skilled at thriving in dynamic work settings, exhibiting a strong desire for continuous learning, and enthusiastically embracing new challenges.
My design identity is a fusion of innovation and tradition, defined by a conceptual approach that seeks to make a bold statement through each creation. I am deeply committed to the craft, ensuring that every piece exemplifies impeccable quality and meticulous attention to detail with the foundation in traditional tailoring and an unyielding interest in patternmaking.
My designs explore experimental shapes, sculptural, and geometric silhouettes that challenge conventional norms. A balanced colour palette and plain textures are my canvas, allowing me to play with interesting structures and fabric manipulation techniques that create a tactile experience for the wearer.
My designs are not merely garments; they are a source of empowerment and a celebration of feminine expression. They embrace the body’s contours, striking a harmonious balance between comfort and functionality, ensuring that fashion empowers rather than restricts. With an eye toward the future, my creations are innovative and futuristic, aiming to push boundaries and redefine style.
