By  | 


Absolutely love the contrast, textures, use of knits. Very intelligent transition to from our current black and white pattern-clashing knits to deeper fall tones and layering. I’m completely blown away by the evidently natural relationship this designer has with fabric. I predict that Libertine will grow into a luxury retail line. Artistic work-wear and trendy lounge-wear. Seems influenced by Dior, Vidal Sassoon and the impressionist era in general.

I'm a commission garment and soft-goods designer. I create high-end garments for private clients, exclusively. I have an undergraduate degree in Graphic design from Parsons School of Design and Virginia Commonwealth University; and a graduate degree in Industrial Design from NCSU. I compete on a national level in competitive fashion arts. I have a very divergent work history and I look for inspiration absolutely everywhere! Recent accomplishments: featured designer on Lifetime Television Spring 2012, headlined Charleston Fashion Week 2011.
