KEY ELEMENTS IN DESIGN PROCESS?: In sports we say, “stay true to your game.” I feel the same applies to design. Your jump shot isn’t always going to go in, and not everyone will like the way you play defense, but you have to stay true to yourself. Find your strengths and build off of that. You can’t react or panic the first time you have doubts. There will always be noise. You have to be careful what noise you listen to. The design process is just that: a process.

CURRENTLY LISTENING TO?: It’s hard for me to listen to one artist exclusively. I love to hit shuffle on my iTunes list. Today I listened to D’Angelo and the Vanguard, Lapsley, Jhene Aiko, Lateef the Truthspeaker, K’Jon, and Slick Rick.
CORE VALUES IN YOUR DESIGN PROCESS?: Contrast and harmony. Elements need to work together. Too much of the same thing doesn’t create unity, unless you like chaos.

WHAT TYPICALLY INSPIRES YOU?: My inspiration comes from so many avenues. I’ve always loved architecture, film, video, and spoken word. Dance has been my current source. I’m also addicted to Pinterest.

We have to admit, we are extremely jealous of
Sloane from Sailing the Sea of Style‘s vacation to St. Barths. She took along our Grand Isle Cover-Up which
made going from the beach to lunch al fresco chic and easy.

WHERE DO YOU CURRENTLY RESIDE?: I live in Nolita, on Mulberry Street. I think I moved there because I liked the street name.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?: I’m inspired by the confident, unexpected sartorial choices of the women of New York I see sweeping past me on the streets, turning the city into a living runway show.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?: I’ve always been sketching fashion – some of my earliest memories are of “drawing girls” so it’s hard to pinpoint when I started as it has always been a part of me. I began my career as an illustrator while in my sophomore year at Washington & Lee University. I launched a website with four notecard designs and the rest is history.
