October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and simultaneously the host of Boston Fashion Week. I invite you to join myself and other Boston-based designers on Thursday October 11th for the Catwalk for BMC Cancer Care.

I was blessed with the opportunity to design custom looks for two beautifully spirited women whom are both survivors of breast cancer. In working with them over the past few months, it’s clear that they are resilient and eternally grateful for what Boston Medical Center has done for them. They are oh so excited to strut down the runway and be celebrated. In honor of these two women and the others who are battling or defeated this disease, I’ve titled this collection, “Phoenix - Risen, Reborn, and Resilient.”

Let’s celebrate all lives that have been affected by this disease and support those whom are trying to help. 


OCTOBER 11TH, 2018
