Life is the ﬁrst thing I consider. As I prepare to take my next steps in my career, I think about what surrounds me – people, places, ways of thinking. I think about the message I want to communicate through my clothing. So far, my research is a melting pot of different mediums. Some of them involve the work of Dana Lixenberg, Esiri Erheriene-Essi, Louise Bourgeois, Timm Rautert, amongst many others.
Some contemporary garment brands that I appreciate are Carl Jan Cruz, Super Yaya and Barragan
. I truly believe in what they do and I love that they are celebrating their culture on a global scale; they are taking fashion to unconventional places.
