For my F/W '20 collection, I was inspired by the peacock. When basing my line on the peacock, I am imagining a woman that has been more reserved and in the background shedding her image and finally gaining confident and living in her beauty.
For my F/W '18 collection, I wanted to show how versatile I could be with my design style. I wanted to include lots of structure by having more form-fitting garments with thicker fabrics and adding in unique features to each look, such as different strap details and design lines throughout the garments.
My F/W '19 collection was originally inspired by the red and gold reversible sequined fabric. I wanted to stick with my brand of evening wear while branching out to include more versatile pieces that can be worn with other items of clothing. I wanted this collection to be a little more edgy while still being elegant.
My S/S '18 collection was a mini-collection that I created for Flyover Fashion Fest in Iowa City in May of 2017. I was originally inspired by the watercolor fabric. Based on the audience of this show, I created this line to be slightly more casual as opposed to by typical evening wear style.
My S/S '19 collection was inspired by a mystical, enchanted garden. I created each look by imagining what gowns would be worn while strolling through a mystical garden. For a color palette, I stuck with jewel tones, while incorporating different leaf and floral textures.
My first full collection debuted at Omaha Fashion Week in February of 2017. My inspiration was the look of flowing waterfalls, so I incorporated lots of flowing details and solid jewel tones.
