"It all started while flipping through pattern books as a baby on my mother's knee. Then came the therapeutic trips to the fabric shop and fashion magazines. I had an insatiable appetite for fashion and money was always an issue, that's where the thrift stores came in.
A trained eye coupled with obsessive compulsive behavior was my recipe for success. The thrill of the hunt and the thrill of the deal just kept pushing me on. I'm now a skilled designer with a love of vintage."
What inspires your fashion sense?
"Just about anything can get me all worked up, inspirationally speaking. If I had to narrow it down, I would say colour and texture. I also appreciate it when things are aligned spatially."
