Flower Power w/@an_erin
Doing things with my friends has always been my why. From catalogue shoots to runways shows I have been forever smitten by my group. It was actually this group that got me started in the first place. My girl Nathalia has been paving the way for sustainable designer fashion for years. She has been creating looks for as long as my portfolio lays, and has had me shooting print for things for as long as I can remember. Casting models and pieces that can be worn all year, in fabrics that are helping our environment!
It was actually HER who inspired me to localize my fashion and pay closer attention to what I valued in my everyday life. She taught me to pay attention to fabrics and to the items I was spending my money on. More specifically the brands I invested myself in. She made me think about how fast fashion was ruining our consumer market, and helped me see what alternatives we could take to start moving in the right direction. It was her who helped me establish JAZZ PS! My brand, my way, my source has all been curated by the insanely strong women who surround me. I am grateful. I am full. I am blessed.
With all of this said, I walked in this show for @an_erin who was the winner of project runway the same season my muse was present! The influence from them both is unparalleled. I have learned so much from them both collectively - so much that I have a major confidence to execute my dreams and concept. Erin has taught me to be flamboyant, strong, and opinionated. Nathalia has taught me to change the course.
I will take both of these things and use them to propel myself in this world.
