I grew up around fabrics and patterns. My mom worked as a dress maker, constructing elaborate wedding gowns and elegant evening wear. My first memory of her workshop was running my hands through a barrel full of buttons. They looked like rock candy to me, and I remember swallowing one or two, much to the horror of my mother. She taught me how to sew our first project, which was creating a simple handbag.
For the past couple of years, I've dedicated myself to creating fresh and fun dresses for young girls from my home workshop in New York. I draw inspiration from magazines and from my weekly exploration of New York city.
My motto: children's clothes should be colorful, stylish and comfortable.
