I studied medicine before I studied fashion. My family wanted me to become a highly educated person. So I studied health science for four years, and I got my Bachelor's degree in that. While my heart wasn’t in medicine the experience proved to be priceless. I learned what body types are, the intricacies of women psychology, and the science behind reading people. And I'm quite good at seeing what they would look good in.

They promise participants ‘the advanced tools, the creative expertise, the industry training and those key connections that will set you apart and launch you in your career,’ and that’s exactly what I got and more.
I designed and styled for celebrities. I would go to their house, fix their wardrobe, and then design unique pieces for them they could wear daily or to special occasions. I do everything from scratch. Everything is hand- drawn. I use my hands and the skills I possess – I believe in doing things properly where you take the time and pour your heart into your work.

I love working with fabric.
What inspires me with fabric and clothing is how I can take a piece of material and transform it into a unique dress or clothing that gives clients a sense of style and individuality.
When I design, it's the fabric that talks.
I buy the fabric, play with the fabric, and often that's where the inspiration comes. It all starts with the fabric. Every piece of material has a unique identity, a soul. My friends laugh hearing me say material is a living-breathing organism. It has a pulse and a heart and a desire to adorn a body.
