As a designer, I love to create designs that make women feel beautiful. For years now, I had envisioned to create a bridal and evening wear collection for women who are looking to feel confident on their special day. In the past months, along with merchandiser Roxana Hernandez, I was finally able to bring this vision to life with the creation of Ethereal.
Ethereal is a bridal and evening wear brand inspired by goddesses and nature. This spring/summer 2015 collection called Divinity features delicate, elegant, and romantic gowns. My designs capture the Goddesses eternally enchanting traits such as beauty, femininity, power, and strength. With long flowing silhouettes and pastel colors, my gowns mimic the alluring elements found in nature.

Over the weekend, I went shopping for more fabrics and zippers. I also was working on my garments #6, 7, and 8.
Now, I have 8 garments that are ready for fittings. Roxy and I are meeting with models today and Wednesday for fittings.
After fittings, I will make alterations and complete the garments so that they are ready for our photoshoot on May 3.
A Fading Beauty
Deep beneath the sea, lies a great beauty,
Coral reefs of vibrant hues,
Once so colorful,
Once so beautiful,
Once so alive,
But now just laying still, fighting to survive,
Every breath, every movement, is a struggle to stay alive.
This collection of vibrant socks consists of abstract and geometric patterns. These casual and ski women’s socks are lightweight to midweight and are to be made with merino wool.
