As a performance artist, dancer and vocalist in love with stage works since the age of 14, I’ve often had to design costumes and accessories for my projects. I have also been fortunate to have some of the top international designers dress me.
3 years ago I started working with vintage jewelry, interesting found metallic objects, period pieces and special beads. The concept is deconstructive/reconstructive, combining sculpting, couture and design. I have since created 150 vintage, medieval, industrial and futuristic Tie pieces.
My collection is called Tie Me and it is categorized under Venus & Ties, Metalika and Beadnik collections.
Each piece was created with no specific formula and pre-fabricated pattern in mind. They are re-constructions of my collected pieces and objects to sculpt my Ties designs. They are handmade and one of a kind. Most fabrics are 100% silk unless for stabling the pieces. I work with a brilliant team and am grateful to them for their openness to working with me on mounting and the assemblage of the pieces.
