they/them pronouns

As a non-normative fashion designer and creative, I am interested in how historically elitist and oppressive spaces (see: the fashion industry, the graphic/visual design field) can actually be tools for lifting up marginalized identities and people. 

My most recent project, The Gender Variant Jacket, is a tunable garment for gender-variant folx (including but not limited to transgender, agender, gender non-conforming, gender nonbinary, gender fluid folx) that allows for different presentations based on the silhouette of the garment.

When I'm not dreaming up radical ways to disrupt the fashion industry, I enjoy eating dried mangoes and journaling. 
I am gender non-binary, so when referring to me, use they/them/their pronouns
