At the start of new projects, I often have numerous ideas, which slowly combine into one story. It could be a muse I’ve discovered or a discomfort that I feel with either society or myself. From this, I try to find practitioners who have explored similar things to help address the conversation I’m trying to have with the collection. I then begin draping, which is where I do most of my designing. Even as pieces are being made in final, they’re still being restyled, and sometimes remade, into different garments as the story of the collection develops.
