I didn’t like what I did back home and decided to get back to school
Where and what did you study?

Do you recommend for other fashion designers to go down this same path?
Everyone’s paths are different and I think people should trust their intuitions to find their happiest path.
Are there are special techniques you prefer to use in your work?
I don’t really have that much special technique to be honest, I just do things how everyone else is doing it absorb, process, and produce.
What other designers do you admire?
Well since my I am obsessed with clothes, my ultimate designers are Junya Watanabe, Miuccia Prada, Raf Simons, Helmut Lang, and Nicolas Ghesquière
