News and Updates

I’ve been busy working on new exciting projects, including a collaborative Etsy shop, and finishing up my school work. Below is a sneak peek of my thesis. If you are in NYC, I invite you to come see the amazing work done by the graduating class at the Fashion Institute of Technology Design Museum. The work will be on view till May 22.

Thesis Progress

Some of the steps involved in making a tote bag. I love watching as a quick sketch becomes a functional three-dimensional object. No matter how many bags I make, I always feel a bit surprised by this.

Sewing Break

I’ve been busy working on my thesis. I designed four handbags and am in the process of sewing them and creating accompanying artwork. Can’t wait to finish and share the results with all of you.

This is a bag I made a year ago (you can see it mentioned here and here on the blog). The photo was taken by a good friend, A Vee Photo who is also a part of the duo at Ian and Inna Photography; you should go see her wonderful work.

Meet Jenny and Juliet

This was my entry for a contest I recently participated in. A dress shoe and boot for upcoming fall. The design is based on mixing materials and utilizes: herringbone, leather and a jelly strap with stainless steel accents.

I Live/ I Love

Hope everyone had a wonderful New Year celebration.

There is still time to see I Live/ I Love, a group gallery show featuring everything from photography and painting to 3D and 4 D work by young artists and designers. The gallery is open 12-6pm daily. The show will be up till January 7. 658 Broadway, Suite 404, New York, NY.


Shoes at Home

Is anyone else making shoes in their bathroom or is it just me?

This is just a mockup, but I have made fully functional shoes with close to zero equipment before. Sorry that the image quality isn’t ideal, I just thought this was funny and had to share. Treating myself to a new camera for Christmas, really excited.


This is a spring collection of sneakers inspired by Gola and the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens (during the cherry blossom festival). They go with the basketball shoes I recently posted. It’s a vintage-inspired collection of plimsolls updated with fun materials and patterns. You can see the designs and a swatch collection I pulled to use with them.
