I'm a Fashion designer creating high end tropical resort and bridal wear.
I live and work in Houston...Hawaii...Florida and all points in between. My style is eclectic...colorful...classic...tropical...with a twist of vintage inspiration... always fun and sexy.
"I feel a woman should have choices and luxury in her wardrobe. My design philosophy is to create beautiful...comfortable...perfectly fitted...couture quality clothing. Resort wear that not only dresses you for an island get-away...but can be incorporated into your everyday life."
I have an online boutique and a private design studio featuring my original and limited edition designs for women and men.
I've done wardrobe for the music and movie / television industry and have over 200+ fashion shows under my belt.
I'm accomplished as a stylist and wardrobe designer and fashion show producer.
I enjoy working with talented people and love meeting people wherever I go. I'm interested in working with seriously talented people... helping each other
to promote our talent and our work. No attitudes...gotta have fun while we get the job done!
Note to Aspiring Models: Never work for FREE. All designers can give you at least clothing or clothing credit for your time (if they can't pay cash). If they offer you 'exposure' it's worth nothing. Your time is worth SOMETHING! (clothing or photos at least)
The right wardrobe can transform your life....presentation is everything....you can't control how you're percieved...you CAN control how you're presented.
Photography has always been my passionate hobby. I do 90% of my own photography for my mag and website. So...I'm always looking for gorgeous models to shoot for TropiCouture as I travel to Hawaii and Key West. (and Houston)
I'm also available to do portfolio shoots for evolving models for a reasonable rate.
