Is there anyone in the industry you admire?

Virgil Abloh. Put your hands down. I both resonate with and have a lot of respect for his journey. Virgil, who is black, has created many firsts and challenges while changing the industry from a consumer, retail and fashion perspective at the top of the food chain. This, among many other reasons, is why I always look up to him.

23Vogue Readers! They were early adopters of fashion, craved high-quality materials, appreciated design and construction details, cared about taking a more responsible approach to their wardrobes, and valued aspiring and inspiring designers.

It’s been a few weeks since you joined the CVFF family, what’s the most amazing part of the process?
The support of the CVFF family is very special; it gave me a new platform to be considered as a designer. Everyone I met at Vogue and CFDA was very sweet and helpful, but I What I found most surprising was the camaraderie among the finalists. The fashion industry is incredibly competitive, but meeting other people for the first time last week felt like I was walking into a family room I didn’t know existed until that moment. Leading with kindness is extremely important to me, and every designer has reported this to me. We are now a community – ’23’s CVFF class.
