WHY NEW YORK CITY?
The fashion industry! I always knew I wanted to move here, and landing a job at Marc Jacobs after college made it a reality.

DREAM DINNER PARTY -- WHICH 7 GUESTS WOULD YOU INVITE?
Jesus, Elsa Schiaparelli, Alexander McQueen, Audrey Hepburn, Oscar de la Renta, Karl Lagerfeld, and Ryan Gosling.
WHAT'S YOUR SIGNATURE LOOK?
I shop mostly onlline and at vintage/discount stores these days. After working in the fashion industry for so long, the thought of buying anything full retail price is ridiculous to me. My signature look is basically very feminine/trendy, and obviously always decked out in jewelry.
ANY CREATIVES YOU WANT TO COLLABORATE WITH?
I would love to collaborate with the Erickson family of Erickson Beamon. The jewelry is beyond fabulous!
FAVORITE PLACE IN THE CITY?
Battery Park -- Quiet & beautiful.
DO YOU HAVE A MUSE?
Edie Sedgwick. That girl ROCKED the big earrings and jewels.
MOTTO YOU LIVE BY?
Cliche, maybe, but..."Everything happens for a reason."
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW AND WHERE CAN WE SEE IT?
I am currently the Design Manager of Lulu Frost Jewelry, and previously was a jewelry designer for Givenchy and Marc by Marc Jacobs. You can find my work online or at major department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Macy's, etc.
