BRE-HIND THE SCENES
Posted on 02 January 2018
SS18 is a very special collection for me, as it's the launch of my first ever clothing collection! I started my career in fashion, and I'm thrilled to be circumnavigating back towards designing clothing, under my own name this time. Being in the fashion industry gave me some incredible experiences and inspiration, as well as some problems to solve for that I applied to my very own line. I wanted to give you clothes that were travel worthy but also traveled well. It also wanted to me to ensure that everything is cut and sewn by hand here in America.
Every piece in the SS18 line is wrinkle free so you don't have to worry about throwing them in a suitcase, hopping on a plane, and arriving to your destination with a sartorial mess. They're machine washable, because I know how annoying (and expensive) dry cleaning is. They're unlined, to give you the most form-fitting and flattering look. They're made of a premium blend of Poly and Spandex to provide you with the best fit and optimal stretch. I want every woman to be able to look and feel their best, no matter their shape or size!
In regards to the the prints, every single one is exclusively designed by me. I majored in Textile Design at FIT and it's something I really love doing to this day. I wanted to create the line around exotic, modern, and contemporary snake prints that would look at home in Ibiza or the Caribbean or wherever your travels take you! I wanted everything to feel jet set glam, whether you end up wearing it to the office or your next vacation.
The lookbook was shot at one of my favorite vacation destinations: The Bahamas! Here are some snaps from our time spent on location below!

The palm trees were to die for.
