As a child, I always loved fashion. I remember cutting up my brother’s sweatshirts and creating doll clothes for my friends at daycare. I was also constantly sketching what I called “pretty dresses”. I watched pageants and old movies, just to see the elaborate gowns. It wasn’t until much later in life that I decided to pursue my dream. I took a basic sewing class learning how to make aprons and purses. From there I learned basic draping and pattern drafting and began my journey into the fashion world. As a primarily self-taught designer, I strive to learn something new every day. I began my journey in 2015 showcasing at NC Fashion Week. Since then, I have won multiple awards including 2016 Goodwill Rock the Runway and most recently the overall Best Designer at the 2018 Big Hair Ball.

Studio B strives to make every women feel beautiful and designs for all sizes. A Studio B custom design will always have an element of drama in each of them. I love the unexpected and pull my inspiration from many different areas. All of my garments are created uniquely for the customer, when you order a Studio B garment you will own a custom unique piece, guaranteed to be one of a kind.
