“There is something so intriguing about wearable art, and I feel I have something creative to offer the design world.”

Becoming a designer: “Growing up in [St. Crois], away from the mainstream, I was never really aware of the shoe industry until much later in my life. But still, I always wanted to design shoes.”

Strength: “I’ve always been interested in fine arts. I try to incorporate my artistic abilities into my design technique.”

Weakness: “I’m bad at thinking of [pieces] as one. It’s hard to narrow things down.”

Presentation strategy: “To present [my work] with a story behind it. Designers are so much more interesting when they have something to say that will capture someone’s attention.”

Biggest competition:
“Hyojin. She’s very crafty and detailed.”
