Summary/Artist's Statement
I am designing to be a part of the change in the fashion industry. The overconsumption of fast fashion is exhausting brands, consumers, and the environment. My goal is to push the boundaries of slow fashion by seamlessly combining timeless simplicity with complexity. My focus is multifunctional sustainable pieces, that can be worn not only forever, but for many purposes.
Image 1: My collection “Eight” is a solution to overconsumption and fast fashion. It fulfills the need for staple pieces, without sacrificing fashion’s ability to excite. Each piece starts as a basic garment and is transformed into a statement look or accessory. All fabric and manufacturing in the collection are sustainable.
