Since i was in 3rd grade, i said i wanted to be a designer, in 5th i wanted to model, in middle school i liked designing and advertising and in highschool i learned about the business side and have stuck with that ever sense.Now that im in college i want to style and be buyer.

My style evolves with me, i like vnecks right now and i dress them up with jewlry or vests, i love the idea of wearability i can wear the same shirt and pants 5 days in a row and you wouldnt notice, Once fashion changes i cut and sew to make it look different and updated. lately ive been adding sequins for a fun pop.

Honestly i shop alot of forever21, i like thrift stores, i have a few pieces from saks and nordstroms.

Somtimes, i jot down my ideas i don't have full collections down but if i imagine something i draw it maybe i'll turn it into something one day but that not my goal.
8. How do you feel the fashion world is heading?
I think that upcoming designers like Alexander Wang, Christian Siriano and Thankoon are really taking fashion to the next level, upcoming models like Chanel Iman and Jourdan Dunn are bringing the supermodel back. I see good things in the future even here in my hometown HOUSTON,TEXAS!!!! we're getting our own fashion week so you'll remember my name for sure.
