I am doing what I do, as my 5-year old nephew says, by diligently working on the sketches of the collection for Spring 2012. I know it seems really far away, but time is swiftly moving. And this coming season I need to be ready.

I've named this collection Out Of The Dark because it reflects triumph over disappointment. It's about my emergence from my blue period and how I am beginning to see the light of promise. The silhouettes are crisp, yet easy and the colors (onyx, cocoa, dove grey, cream, and tomato) are fairly subdued. There's not a whole lot of embellishment, but an interesting mix of textures and fabrics.
I am standing on the universe's promises that I will obtain all that I need to translate this collection from paper to reality and that the stores will finally be ready to embrace my aesthetic. That is my prayer and that is what gives me the vitality and the spirit to press on. So stay tuned. . .
