"I try to get in a walk here and there as well, too. Because too much time hunched over a sewing machine really isn’t the best for anyone.”
The 20-year-old model and aspiring designer is featured in our Fall ’18 campaign.
What made you decide to respond to our open call?
“I was actually reached out to by someone who informed me about it, and I’m so grateful that they did, because I got the chance to experience something amazing.”
What are your professional or artistic goals?
“I want to be a full time model as well as fashion designer. I’m slowly working toward that now, and I’m very much looking forward to what the future holds.”
Can you walk us through a typical day in your life?
“I try to start every morning with my workout to get my body warmed up and ready for the day. Then some oatmeal for breakfast. After that I usually get some cleaning done, to keep up with the messy family I have. And then the rest of my day pretty much consists of sewing and designing. I try to get in a walk here and there as well, too. Because too much time hunched over a sewing machine really isn’t the best for anyone.”
How would you describe your own personal style?
“My style ranges anywhere from ‘Will Smith in Fresh Prince’ to ‘I'm an old lady who collects vintage for a living.’ Which I’m so down for! My style will always be what I like to call ‘wacky granny.’”
What are your 3 favorite American Apparel items?
“Oh no, this is a hard one. But if it’s life or death, the high waisted mom jean, the full low back body con dress, and, OH, the boot cut high waisted jeans!”
