"Best Fashion Designer"

2017

.

 "Once I have an idea I always, always drape it on my dress form and consider all the proportions and functionality of it in its physical form. Then I question everything about it. Should it be longer, sleeveless, tighter, is this the right fabric? And I don’t stop myself from wandering down a new rabbit hole and forgetting my original idea if something more exciting presents itself…. then fabulous. Because of this process, I almost never end up producing the exact idea that I sketched or first was inspired by. The evolution of it as it’s created is how it gets better."
