Guys, are you ready? This is quite possibly the most exciting news! And I’ve been keeping it a secret for almost a year! I’m pregnant! Ha, no, definitely kidding. It is like my child (but no, it’s not actually a child). I’ve definitely grown to love it like one, I’m so proud of it, and ready to release it into the world. Well, here goes:
I’ve designed a mini capsule collection! We’re so so so close to it being released – one more week to go, but I couldn’t wait any longer to tell you the news. I’ve been wanting to design clothing for over 3 years now, ever since I moved to New York and switched my career path from architecture to fashion. Slowly but surely I really started missing designing. In 5 years of school, I grew to love timeless architecture. Simple, beautiful, but different in subtle ways. My favorites included Peter Zumthor, Mies van der Rohe, and SANAA. That’s how I knew I would approach fashion design. Design things that would be essentials in your closet, because they were both simple and special. So I’ve designed 3 pieces, that can be worn transitionally day and night, summer and winter. 3 pieces that can be used many different ways. 3 pieces you’ll love for a very long time. (P.S. 3 is my lucky number, not sure why I believe in lucky numbers, but I do, and I have three lines tattooed on my right forearm).
And how was all of this possible? That’s where the amazing team at Designow comes in. Anyone can design a piece yourself (as many as you want), then enter it into a competition. If you end up in the top tier, you can enter the product development program. Once you complete the program, a sample garment will be manufactured, photographed, and posted in the store. Pretty amazing, right? Learn more here!

P.P.S. Stay tuned to see the collection next week!
