My collection mixes athletic fabrics with couture handcrafting techniques. I was inspired by the work of artists like Mickalene Thomas, Caroline Larsen and Dan Flavin. The traditional handicrafts also have a great influence on me. In the collection, I use multiple techniques, including weaving, hand stitching, and bonding to create rich layers. The neon color shines through dark sheer chiffon, creating a color mystery.
