HOW HAS BEING CANADIAN INFLUENCED YOUR DESIGNS?
“Canadians have a very well-balanced lifestyle, especially in Vancouver where snowboarding, canoeing and swimming are a half-hour drive from downtown. It’s probably why I find myself referencing sportswear despite being a womenswear designer.”
“I’m from the west coast where the weather is temperate and the city is surrounded by natural beauty. I try to design jewellery that mimics the Vancouver landscape. You should be able to wear my line Wwake every day and appreciate its simplicity and the beauty of the stones.”
“I love that Canada is a diverse sea of people and cultures. My design philosophy aligns with Canada’s philosophy as a country: Be open, passionate and humble.”
