I must also thank Fashion Art Toronto for allowing me to follow my vision for this collection, which I feel has been my most articulated line to date. My devotion to sustainable fashion has been recognized and I am living my highest truth by doing these collections.
I love all of you who support me.

SS18, “UNDERGROUND MONARCH” Collection premieres April 18th 2018 at 9:15pm at Daniels Spectrum as a part of the “DISCONNECT” day for Fashion Art Toronto.
For my Spring Summer 2018 range of designs, I am combining a traditional aspect of regal aesthetic, while incorporating my trademark underground vintage fashion style. The initial idea was to take two opposite concepts, and in harmony, bring the two together to break the divide between high class and low class society. The show itself will begin with streetwear inspiration, with a monarch inspired take before the collection slowly transforms into more sophisticated look which will possesses an element of grit, grunge, and rock and roll which is what I am known for.
