This journey really grew from my love of costume throughout history and the ability to create something tangible; something that can embody an emotion, a moment in time, and directly reflect the environment. I spent my college and early career years in Los Angeles creating costumes and styling wardrobe for films, events, magazines, musicians and commercial businesses; with clients attending the Oscars, Emmys and Grammy award ceremonies.
I am naturally curious and quickly got drawn garment production. My thirst constantly grew, to understand where the garments and materials were coming from; who was making them and how they were doing it.
Witnessing and experiencing garment creation in a commercial setting was very eye opening. Apparel is the second largest industry in the world and extremely harmful to the environment. Many exploited factory workers do not have the support and enforcement from their local governments to protect them.
It became my passion to make a difference. I started using my experiences in sustainable design and production as a platform to teach valuable principles in the educational community.
Now, I am reaching out to individuals and businesses in all communities to expand the wave of positive change in the apparel industry.
You can look amazing AND make a difference in the world.
