We are all very busy, on-the-go women. I like to create styles that are fashionable, modern, statement pieces that are easy to wear.

Do you think you can win PR? Yes! Fashion is my life's inspiration. I love how the right clothes can actually create a positive emotional change. When you're loving your digs, you love life a little more. When you're loving them because I made them for you, I'm loving life with you! Besides having the emotional connection to fashion, i have the talent and fresh approach for the marketplace.
