About Mary

Fashion, in my eyes, is a form of creative and personal expression that can be approached from multiple angles of study. I am interested in the marriage between historical/ narrative design and conceptual design. Dialogues between past and present. I feel that neither approach is more relevant than the other, but finding the exact meeting point between the two is where something new and meaningful can be created. Challenging history, I like to appropriate elements of historical styles from different periods and eras in order to find a humorous and adolescent spin. This approach, I feel offers an escape from reality and brings long-established traditions up to day with today's society. I strive to emulate this idea through creative plays on materials and silhouettes, fabric manipulations, and innovative prints.
