the brand

the designer

A Jamaican born graduate from the High School of Fashion Industries, I was inspired to design after attending my first Burning Man in 2013 and witnessing the amazing Burning Man costumes created in the Burner fashion scene. I”m lucky to live in New York City where there’s an established Burner community and numerous Burning Man regional events year round. I try to make my normal life contain as much playa magic as possible, and take any opportunity to dress in fabulous outfits.

I call my style aesthetic goddess couture, and aim to design garments that allow women to let their inner goddess shine. We live in a world that tells us that we have to look and act a certain way in order to be accepted by normal society. Seeing people go against this norm and express their individuality is one of the most beautiful things I’ve witnessed at transformative festivals. My first year at Burning Man, I was not only amazed by the extraordinary festival fashion, but the range of human expression I saw on playa. Never before had I seen people express themselves so creatively and connect with others. Going to festivals and costuming has changed my life, and helped me to become a better person who is open to new experiences. My goal is to encourage others to feel the same way when they wear Fringe & Epaulette. I design with the intent of creating a magical experience for my clients and those who view them.
