LL: Explain your personal relationship with fashion?
M: I have ALWAYS loved fashion. When I was younger my grandma was a fashion and beauty guru, she had a closet full of amazing clothes and beautiful jeweler. I use to play inside her closet and dream to one day have my own amazing collection of clothes. During my teen years I search for my own personal style, I as many girls do during this time of our life. During this time I learned fashion is more that clothes. Fashion can be good for the soul; when you pick the right outfit that enhances your natural beauty, it empowers you! Also I learn to appreciate high fashion and couture. The way each garment is made is a true art for! To see a simple idea on a sketch come to life is true magic. I am basically a simple girl who is a big fan of the art of fashion!
