I am a fashion designer and entrepeneur living in Garden Grove. I am current majoring in merchandise product developement at Orange Coast College. This major is similar to fashion design, however it lacksthe pressure to create an entirely original garment but rather take an orginal garment and make it more wearable and affordable for the masses. I have no worked for anyone in this field, although I have sold some of my products. Most of my art is drafted on white paper, pen, and color pencil before I sew it with 100% cotton fabric from local vendors.
I gather most of my concepts from magazines like Elle and Vogue. I most influenced by world cultures, the victorian era, sailor uniforms, and flowers. When designing an outfit for someone, I strive to put together an outfit that is not only appropriate for the occasion but also infused with their personal tastes. My current body of work is to create a complete catalog for my (still in progress) online fashion business.
