My Life As A Designer Pt.2 (The Collection)

Hey beauties!

I woke up today feeling blessed to have the opportunities I have and it got me thinking hard about this collection. I decided to put together an “about the collection” without giving away too many details right away. I wanted to do this to help get a better understanding of the thoughts and purposes behind each piece as well as the collection as a whole. A lot of popular designers are so off into their world that when they create a collection they don’t let their consumers or even those that they inspire into their brain. Have you ever wondered why a designer created a specific item or where the idea came from? This is why I want to let you all into my brain during this journey so you may get a feel for what this process meant to me.

The Details:

The Style: Using my love for the human body and wishing more people would love what they have and what they don’t have I created pieces with shape and body to give them the feel of sexiness and freedom. When I wear a dress with movement I like to feel the wind hit the dress as I’m walking it gives me that fierceness and I turn on my Naomi Campbell and strut the streets! haha!


The Inspiration: I am inspired by women who believe they can’t or feel they aren’t strong enough in tough situations. I LIVE to design for those women! For that woman I have thrown in something with edge & structure to give them the strength to kick down those walls they’ve built and be the bad ass they were meant to be!


The Goal: Each and every piece I’ve created was made to make the woman wearing it want to takeover the room and do all she has ever wanted to do!


I am a self-taught designer, I hand sew each piece I make, I am the UNTRADITIONAL designer. I create to give power where it might lack, to give sex appeal to those who may feel they don’t have it. I was never taken seriously as a designer, I reached out to several people to work and got told NO! When you do what you love no matter how you get it done do it with all you’ve got! Put your heart, soul, mind, body and spirit into it! If you never get discovered by the people you wish to in your dream field create that opportunity for yourself! Never sit back and wait for someone to feel you deserve it! If one person tells you no you keep pushing until you get your YES! Don’t stop doing what you love to do or being or who you are for anyone, for any reason. I beg you guys to go after the things you desire in your life and leave no time wasted. Comment below telling me about a time someone told you no or you can’t and how you showed them different?

I’m sure a lot of women would appreciate designs like this made to make them feel empowered. cant wait to see them xx

  2. YES! Fashion that makes you feel good when wearing it is the best! When I’m having a crap day, some good makeup and an awesome outfit is my go-to for an easy pick me up.
