About

My fashion practice was influenced at a young age from painting with my grandfather in Puerto Rico. I draw inspiration from the nature and structures around me specifically the beautiful tropical flowers in my grandparent’s garden. My work focuses on inclusive sizing, accessible and adaptive clothing. Textile manipulation, pattern-making and wearers feedback is at the core of my designing process. My work focuses on designing transforming silhouettes, with expanding and contracting textiles, such as pleats, origami, smocking and embroidered geometrical shapes. I believe inclusive sizing and accessible clothing is important because it is essential for everyone to own garments that will make them feel included. In addition, the process of finding and getting dressed in the right garment based on aesthetics and the functionality should be an easy task and that has influenced my capsule collection called Multiple Sizes in One.
