Exploring black and white in a not so black and white world
After spending time abroad at Central Saint Martins, I dove into processing new philosophies. With this mini collection, my goal was to listen to the drape of the fabrics, lines of the body, and explore balance.
Balance is a foreign concept to most college students. It is easy to slip into a gray frame of mind. Only an idealized world is made up of only black and white.
"To see in color is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul."

TEA with GRACE
SIMPLE AND PRETTY, NOT PRETTY SIMPLE
This dress is all about the subtle details. It has a horsehair trim, scarf and belt to match, and floral embellishments on the cuffs.
ELONGATING, NOT JUST LONG
I designed this dress keeping in mind lengthening and thinning the body, while highlighting it's natural curves.
ALL ABOUT THE DRAPES
This deep-v, low back blouse was the first time I fully explored the realm of draping. It is paired with a tiered, asymmetrical wrap skirt that came about through a lot of trial and error, until it was just the right proportions.
