Created between my sophomore and junior year at RISD, I used this collection to take an experimental deep dive into color and texture. Being as this was the first full collection I had created during my time in college, I became very interested in the idea of a coming of age narrative. Taking inspiration from adolescence and high school stereotypes, it ultimately ended up with an aesthetic I like to describe as varsity athlete meets clown school.
Adolescence debuted at Styleweek Northeast in Providence, Rhode Island on September 20, 2018.
