Edgy chic is how I would describe my line. When creating the concept I looked to street fashion photography for inspiration. I was also influenced by punk rock looks and 70’s fashions. With flower appliques in style right now I wanted to incorporate roses into my collection. I then imagined a leather jacket with roses all over and that’s when my line really took off. The results are looks with a mix of edgy rocker elements and classic silhouettes with a splash of roses.
