What is fashion to me?
Fashion is an expression of who I am! It shows people my free spirit and creativeness. I like to show my individualism and fashion is the best way for me to that. Since I am a free spirit and a bird of a different feather, I like to express that with my art work and my fashion is an extension of my art work.
