My senior collection, Reflection of Elegance, was inspired by my semester abroad in Canterbury, England. While attending university, I was able to travel across Europe, taking photographs of stained glass windows in a variety of countries. After returning to the United States, I took my photographs and used Photoshop to create textile prints, which I then printed onto fabric. This collection also features many geometric seams, piecing together over 200 individual satin shapes, many of which are emphasized with handmade gold bias tape. 

Each starburst crown was handmade, in addition to model accessories including earrings, rings, and kiln-carved glass shank buttons.
