Some of my favorite sources of fashion inspiration stem from the ordinary, common scenes we see everyday. From ancestral homes adorned with wrought-iron grillwork & ornamental metal on beautiful windows and gates, to busy markets filled with homespun crafts. These familiar scenes influence me to create dresses and gowns with an artisanal, handmade quality and a tongue-in-cheek visual play on the familiar.
Inspiration is everywhere if we just take time to look around!
