I love being a fashion designer, but even more than that I love sharing my gift to help other people. I was approached by the “Love Without Reason Foundation” to be a part of “SHINE! Fashion Show & Luncheon for Women and Girls of all Ages” on Saturday, April 18th, 2015. The event was at ICCM Theatre in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Proceeds from this fashion show were used to provide cost-free surgeries by highly specialized maxillofacial and craniofacial surgeons to children in developing countries born with craniofacial (head and face) deformities.Read More

Over five hundred miles later, seven and a half hours in a car, and having battled the “snowmaggedon” of the South – we arrive at Gage Talent Agency in Knoxville, Tennessee. The models were lined up clear out the door. In total, there were 140 potential models to chose from. They were all there for the designers of Knoxville Fashion Week. At 7pm, we walk in the door and are ushered to a back room to place our gowns on a garment rack. The problem? All the garment racks areRead More
Atelier Versace Spring/Summer 2015 Collection Runway Show: Atelier Versace showcases stunning dresses with contemporary style cutouts that border on revealing. The strategically placed curvatures amplify the sensuality of the female form. However, they leave just enough to the imagination to be considered sexy. The asymmetric lines of the dresses are intricately woven to create complex patterns with a very modern feel. It is almost as if the female human body is a canvas for contemporary art. They are flattering in bold red, royal blue, stark white, black, and nude fabrics. SheRead More

Four years of higher education at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). Inspiration Boards. Multiple sketches of a gown on a croquis. Draping multiple looks. Patternmaking. Muslin creation. Re-evaluating the pattern based on the results of the muslin. Cut the expensive fabric based on the new pattern. Hand sew the outer shell. Line the dress. Hem. Hand sew the finishing touches. This whole process for only one gown. This photoshoot had six. As a fashion designer, creating gowns is a labor of love. Organizing a photoshoot is a laborRead More
Throughout history, Labor Day has been one of the major holidays that has impacted fashion. In some form or another, I’m sure you have heard the saying “Don’t wear white after Labor Day!” Why is this? Why all of a sudden is a color forbidden? Well, it all started in the 1800’s, early 1900’s.  Wearing white was a symbol of wealth. Since laborers couldn’t afford to take time off of work for vacation they would always wear their blue collar uniforms/outfits. The wealthier would always show of their wealth by wearing whiteRead More

Remembering A Great American Actor: Robin Williams

In honor of Robin Williams’ life, I dedicate this article to one of the funniest actors I have ever watched. He has inspired numerous people and deserves to be remembered as the amazing man that he was. I have scoured the pictures and compiled several of my favorite outfits of him. From being a cheerleader to wearing a uniform, he has always looked handsome. Not to mention his unforgettable stint as the infamous British nanny, Mrs. Doubtfire.  May this wonderful man rest in peace and make them laugh in Heaven.Read More

Trendy Teens: Fashion at the Teen Choice Awards

The time for the Teen Choice Awards has arrived! Apart from the newest scandal – that winners have been decided days before the voting ends –  there were a few new trends brought to light. This year the stars were all about crop tops, braids, pony tails, and bright colors. Although my picks for “Best Dressed” are different from other critics, I believe they are worthy to be noted. Among my favorites were:   Shay Mitchell Delicate lace is always a good choice for a feminine look. Sarah Hyland TheRead More
Here are my favorites of this year’s fall couture shows in Paris:   Scenery:   Christian Dior My favorite atmosphere this year was the Christian Dior couture show. Thousands of orchids adorned the walls –  making it a perfect romantic Parisian venue. Although I was not overly impressed with the designs this year, it was impressive how Raf Simon integrated centuries of fashion into one show. I would be lying, however, if I didn’t say I miss the design genius of John Galliano. To be clear, this only means hisRead More

In-Store Retail is Going Down, Down Baby

It’s no surprise that retail has plummeted the past few years. The economy, alone, has been an utter disaster. Consumers are strictly looking for the best deals and why not? E-commerce has changed the way people shop dramatically. You can buy goods from across the world with free shipping, better prices, superior quality, and in bulk. For example, in my last internship I helped my boss style her outfits for New York Fashion Week (NYFW). By shopping online, I saved her over $500. It’s all about keywords and knowing whatRead More
Seeing as summer is about to arrive, I figured it would be a good idea to share instructions on how to tie ties for those special occasions coming up. Southern men usually lean towards pastel ties and tend to dress up more than Northern men. Having lived in both places, it’s interesting to see the differences between the two. Wherever you live, it’s a good idea to have options in ways to accessorize ties to further an outfit. People notice when you wear it a special way. Trust me. Below,Read More
Wedding season is about to be here! New York Spring Bridal Week has presented some of the most beautiful gowns on the runway. Designers focused on airy, delicate gowns that any bride would swoon over. Sleeves were a main focus along with illusion looks that had tattoo style lace. Vera Wang, Reem Acra, and Monique Lhuiller showed illusion necklines, sleeves, and back details. Monique Lhuiller even presented a mint green tulle ball gown that easily became my favorite. Her inspiration this year was “My Ethereal Daydream.”She drew inspiration from American portraitRead More
My favorite time of year has arrived! This time of year brings some of the best skiing and snowboarding conditions. What better way to start celebrating the slopes than getting an amazing jacket! There are two main types of ski jackets that are available – the insulated jacket and the shell jacket. Each can be worn skiing and/or snowboarding.   INSULATED JACKET Insulated jackets help to provide warmth when it’s cold outside – without having to wear too many layers. They use a synthetic fabric on the outside, which isRead More
