Apparel and Textile Design Projects

My apparel design projects often focus around swimming, upcycling, and comfort. Swimming inspired both the functional and aesthetic qualities of several projects. I was inspired to address functional needs of swimmers when I designed novel swimming-related garments, formal clothing made to fit swimmers' bodies, and upcycled training swimsuits. I was inspired by the aesthetic qualities of water in my hand-dyed swimming-inspired textile collection and in my collection of formal clothing for swimmers. I also enjoy making casual athletic clothing, crocheting blankets, and designing functional apparel.
