runway shows...















These are some images from past shows i have been involved in that i wanted to share...
After graduating from THE SCHOOL OF THE ART INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO with a BFA, i was hired to work as a designer at Club Monaco in NYC. While there, I was exposed to the commercial industry of fashion design. Although the knowledge I gained from this job was invaluable, I saw a great disparity between the commercial designs and my personal views on how the body is represented. After three years I resigned to re-focus my talent and efforts as a fine artist.
