Check out her inspiration board below!
What factors played a part in forming your inspiration board?
My theme obviously played a huge roll in my inspiration board..I pulled from the beach and nature to show flowy looks I’m drawn most to.
How does your design represent you “as a designer?
My design represents me in all aspects, especially in all the little details.
Have you started thinking about building your team yet -- from marketing and modeling to runway production? Any fun ideas to share?
I have been thinking about the type of person I will need on my team, especially night of. For models I have been thinking about different girls I know would do a good job and represent me well. For my show I don't want dramatic make up, because when I think of the beach I don't think about a lot of make up..just very natural looking.
