The kind of designer I would like to be is one that works hard and gets to where I am as a result of my hard work, effort, creativity, and perseverance. I want to be like the designers who got to where they were with their talent and dedication to their designs.
I am awed and constantly amazed at the ever-changing ideas of fashion, however, I am also very influenced by some key designers.
Elie Saab with his use of detail, in the beautiful flowing gowns he creates that constantly appear on the red carpets.

Valentino’s whimsical dresses that look straight from a fairytale also inspires me in the way he can create a story with the right fabrics and techniques.

Alexander McQueen’s designs are described as romantic and crazy. Something I find admirable and aesthetically well designed.

These people and their incredible work have greatly influenced and inspire me to study at the College of Creative Arts to learn new techniques and graduate with a Bachelor of Design majoring in Fashion.
