A collection originally based on a statue of Aphrodite in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her arms are missing and parts of her face, this inspired me to pursue inspiration from one of my favorite subjects: cemeteries. I used photos from the New York Public Library as well as my own photographs for inspiration. My color story is based on the contrast between stone and nature that occurs in cemeteries. My textiles developments explore the idea of decay. My overall collection combines beauty in details and simplicity in silhouettes.
