From a young age, like many girls, I was enamored with all things pink, the vibrant beauty of flowers and fruits, and the delicate charm of lace. These enchanting elements transported me to a fairy-tale world of princesses. However, my fashion aspirations received little support from my family and friends, who had different career aspirations for me, such as becoming a doctor or lawyer. Nonetheless, I firmly believe that life is not solely about wealth; it's about pursuing what ignites your passion and brings true happiness.
My opportunity finally arrived after I graduated from university with a major in business trade. I pursued my dream of studying fashion design, honing my skills at prestigious institutions like PARSON NYC and The U.A.L in the UK. My unwavering passion remained my greatest source of empowerment.
In 2014, two of my designs, the enchanting evil eye clutch and the vibrant cubic clutch, catapulted me into the spotlight. I consistently graced the pages of national magazines such as ELLE, COSMO, PEOPLESTYLEWATCH, LIFE&STYLE, SEVENTEEN, SEVENTEEN MAG, and earned the admiration of celebrities. My designs even found a place in designer collections at Macy's.
All my creations are born from sustainable materials like acrylic, also known as Lucite, adorned with exquisite flowers, beads, and more. This fusion of sustainability and elegance encapsulates the timeless and feminine aesthetic I hold dear. I'm profoundly grateful to everyone who has supported me on this incredible journey.
My path also led me to the United States for love, where I encountered numerous obstacles, faced rejections, and tackled the challenge of mastering a new language. Yet, my unwavering belief in the power of determination and hard work kept me going. Let's continue to chase our dreams and embrace a life full of possibilities.
