Who are your career heroes?
My career heroes are two incredible humans that I have had the privilege to work with: the brilliant, humble, and grounded haute couture designer, Alber Elbaz and the kind and trend-savvy luxury eyewear designer, Selima Salaun. Hands down, they’ve given me the best life/work lessons and experiences a young designer could wish for. They helped me further develop my perspective and think conceptually with art, business, design, and life in general.
What’s a typical day like for you?
A typical day is a-typical. Generally, it starts with a cup of coffee and catching up on emails. From there, it’s a combination of client fittings, various areas of production, stylist pulls and midtown runs for trim and embellishments.
That’s the beauty of it, each day is its own. I mainly create bespoke pieces, so my life and days are filled with creative, like-minded, dope people.
