About

I've been dreaming of being a part of NY Fashion week since I began my line 4 years ago and finally, I got my invitation! I've been designing furiously to get my show together and it's meant many sleepless nights.

The Inspiration for my Collection is...

Humanity in its evolving state.
Working within the erratic and harsh climates of constant transformation, the nomadic motion of an urban lifestyle, while (re)learning to work with the environment rather then against it.
Styled yet practical - protected against the elements, tailored yet rugged - dark as if cocooning the form as it re-establishes its place amongst the noble elements of the earth through respectful action.
Learning to give back - a warrior... humble.
Garments have a feeling of age, finding their character through the passing of time, meant to last a lifetime (or more), there is no trend, pieces are transient, intermingling from one moment to the next, one year to the next.
Timeless.

Unfortunately an invitation doesn't mean free and I need some help to get me on the runway and to get all the big-wigs to see my work!

Your pledges will go to...
PR (moucho dinero), Models, Runway photography, travel expenses, the Greenshows fee, NY Fashion week listing fees.
**5% of all money raised will go to Architecture for Humanity in support of Haiti earthquake rebuilding (but I have to reach my goal! www.architectureforhumanity.org)

Thank you!!
