La Belle Magazine Feature
Yours Truly was featured in the first issue of La Belle Magazine, a London-based magazine for teen girls. This piece was featured in the August 2018 issue.
The inspiration behind Yours Truly derived from the idea of women taking ownership of their bodies. Many women are told what they can and cannot wear. Every woman should feel free to wear what makes them feel confident and ethereal. No one is owned by someone else, and anyone wearing Yours Truly should feel a sense of freedom. No one is owned by someone else, and it would be my hope that anyone wearing the Yours Truly Collection would feel a sense of freedom.

Terre Mère Collection
Inspiration and sketches for a four-look sustainable line. I was inspired by sustainability and the act of ethical fashion. I titled the line “Terre Mère” which is french for “Mother Earth.” This collection was constructed using old clothing, fabric remnants, and repurposed jewelry.

Using my own illustration and my school's digital fabric printer, I designed and constructed a simple “tent-styled dress”. This dress features my own original textile design on the fabric, making this piece even more original.
