This collection was shown at NCSU’s juried Art to Wear fashion show in 2009. Run by students, the production attracted over 3,000 attendees that year.

Based on the Carolina coast, the natural beauty and carefree sentiments influenced this collection. I interpreted the organic forms of native elements though hand dyed cotton and silks. I want viewers to feel the same sense of renewed serenity and simplicity that I do when I’m At The Beach.
