Student of Fashion Design and Merchandising @ SMTAFE Bentley
Fashion is more than a creative expression for me. It is a way of combining my strong philosophical values with my desire to influence and empower the women around me. I have always struggled to ‘bite my tongue’ on topics I am passionate about and this is because I was raised by an incredibly strong woman herself who taught me to proudly hold my morals high. I hope that myself and my brand can inspire women to be the most authentic version of themselves possible… whether that be masculine, feminine, loud, soft, bossy or alien. My first collection I am currently working on encompasses these values wholeheartedly.
