I am a fashion knitwear and textile design specialist. My professional experience includes designing garment collections for fashion companies in New York City and Vancouver, and designing experimental collections for my own label. My garments and textiles are inspired by the complexity of hidden structures found in nature, exploring sculptural qualities and aiming to produce unexpected architecture. A conjunction between traditional craftsmanship and modern technology in my garments and textiles conveys a unique design aesthetic. My work has been exhibited internationally in Paris, Berlin, Florence and New York. I teach courses in fashion design, pattern drafting and construction, collection development, as well as knitwear design.
