Finalizing my degree at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, I chose to balance my design career with the technical skills I needed to shape my future. My interest in fashion has led me to explore different areas in design, pattern making, textiles, and production. My Zero Waste collection is a collaboration with Fibershed. It is a collective inspired by nature, sustainability, and the innovative approach to fashion through zero-waste design.

My Zero Waste Patterns are designed and inspired by geometric shapes that create a responsible design using sustainable textiles. The featured Coastal Loungesuit, was created as a Fibershed Zero Waste Design Challenge at Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. My designs reflect a comfortable and sophisticated look and feel utilizing the unconventional pattern layout of zero-waste design.
