AYA – Pre-Fall 2015 Collection, Lookbook

AYA logo


My collection, AYA, explores illusions and tensions of dark and light and translucence and opacity. Paradoxical feelings of weightlessness and solidity and delicacy and strength coexist through the collection’s minimalist designs and rectilinear inspirations from geometry and architecture. Fabric properties are simultaneously inhibited and exploited through invented textiles that were created with laser cutting, needle-punching, and melding. Varying transparencies and densities contradict and complement one another as the collection both dematerializes and emerges.

My purse designs are created with leather and customized, laser-cut plexiglass purse handles.
