    When I started this whole process, I reflected back on my childhood and where I grew up, and living in southern California all my life, I have always had a love for the surf and skate culture and this attitude of relaxed rebellion that these boys exuded. So I wanted to start this collection by kind of living vicariously through these boys who I always wished I could be, by taking men’s clothing like worn out denim jeans, wetsuits, board shorts, surf ponchos and sweatshirt hoodies, and draping and deconstructing them and ultimately started creating these feminine pieces that still had the attitude and ease that these surfers and skaters exude.
