So happy that my designs have been included in #HERSTORY. Thank you Scarlett BoBo for wearing our collaboration + my SS19 runway looks on Canada’s Drag Race launching July 2nd on Crave.
For our Spring-Summer 2020 collection, I aspire to bring forward an elegant, sophisticated, and classic approach to edgy high streetwear. Over the years, I’ve seen the importance of creating a sustainable fashion brand that transcends into different categories and genres of style. The goal with the Zenith Eunoia collection is to reimagine, reinvent, and repurpose a mix between modern-vintage streetwear with luxurious finishings; inspired by haute couture techniques. You can expect this collection to have strong features like rhinestone embellishing, swarovski crystals, beaded fabrics, embroidery, and pearls. Mixing opposite ends of the spectrum undoubtedly has a mature and glamorous appeal while remaining true to my youthful design aesthetic. My goal as an artist is to grow. I hope my clients, audience, and spectators can grow and learn with me too as time goes on.
the time at which something is most powerful
It comes from the Greek word εὔνοια, meaning “well mind” or “beautiful thinking.”

Every once in a while, I have the time to document the full process of a commission. As soon as I received this order in September, I knew that given the aesthetic direction and artistic elements involved, that this would be one of those commissions I had to document for a blog. The idea from the client was to have a neon green puffer jacket with the incorporation of alien motifs to wear in the winter. Winter style is known to be a little drab and uninspiring from my experience, so this project was a true one off experience to assist in conceptualizing and producing.
Below is the finished product, but if you want to see the entire process of creation, continue scrolling!
Below are photos of the puffer jacket in its most basic form. The request from my client was that we source a jacket with the largest quilted patterns which I kept in mind while sourcing.
Next up, it was essential to do swatching tests to begin the process. Fabric testing and execution took several coats and garnishing touches before we arrived at the perfect coverage and hue. I also strategically taped off the side and arm panels as well as the top half of the jacket so that the neon colour contrasted well.
Photos and videos below are the videos from my instagram stories/updates I gave my client.
After garnishing with a fabric sealant, It was time to start handcrafting the alien patches from reclaimed leather and to give it that finished, embroidered edge. I also added an an alien motif zipper-pull to tie in the theme.
The very last step was to heat set the paint several times to ensure that the paint holds onto the original fabric.
Fall Winter 2019 “Revolutions Per Minute” is a small, intellectual collection that I created in order to streamline my roots as a design creative and also plays into the narrative of how I view the world around me. I decided this season to rework non binary and unisex street-wear staples such as oversized hoodies done in a battle armour inspired way, jackets that are interchangeable + full of conviction, tailored denims, but also statement accessory items like surgical and masquerade masks to accentuate the story-line. Each design element used in R.P.M directly correlates with the overall message I am sending through the medium of sustainable fashion. Also, with a new decade approaching quickly, I acted on the importance of intertwining intellectual design and re-imagined style altogether.
I have reimagined, reinvented, and repurposed my ideology alongside these items in this collection in hopes of bringing people together to have a common purpose. I want to spark a conversation as to how we can work together to make a difference, starting with what we wear and how we wear it. “REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE” was made for style revolutionaries and fashion rebels everywhere.
