Meet the Runway Fashion Designers for our 2024 event

I have had a love for fashion and sewing for as long as I can remember. After studying fashion design and visual merchandising in college I knew I had only just dipped my toes into the fashion world. Post-graduation, I decided to start my own brand Revamped Threads where I upcycle and repurpose clothes and accessories into one-of-a-kind pieces. I am currently working full-time at ISAIC, the Industrial Sewing and Innovation Center as a Line Lead for the Carharrt beanies. In my free time, I work on my small business and travel around doing pop-up shops. The collection I am showcasing today is called Better Than Yesterday. The majority of the collection is upcycled and repurposed with my own designs. My vision for these looks is edgy with a hint of grace.
