About me

Art has been one of the most profound parts of my life. Growing up in Romania it started with small doodles and evolved into something much greater. Upon moving to the UK I vastly improved my skill sets in categories of art such as Portrait drawing, painting and as of most recently Fashion Design. These skills allowed me to improve upon traits such as texturizing, shading, photo realism and many more which have all helped me in one of my proudest accomplishments, that being the running of my own business.

I started out fashion design without any knowledge of it, but throughout this year I feel as though I have flourished doing so using skills such as sewing, pattern cutting, measuring and the conception of many ideas. Feedback has truly been a brilliant asset to the improvement of my work and the reaching of my goals.

This project meant a lot to me due to the fact that I was allowed to let my imagination flow. Nothing was out of bounds and I gravitated to creating something in which I feel as though personally represents me. I took my favourite season as an inspiration (that being summer) and let my mind do the rest. The way in which the dress flows and is a more relaxed fit promotes the sense of freedom and less restriction.
