This has been such a dramatic month!
I experienced my very first hurricane and then moved back to Michigan, all within a week.
I sketched the idea for this dress in NYC while I was hiding from Hurricane Sandy in my friend Fiona's apartment.

I used a dress that my friend Emily was going to throw away and combined it with fabric scraps and embellishments that I had leftover from school and that I brought home from New York.
It's all about making something out of nothing! Like this dress, I'm excited to combine my school and Michigan experiences with what I learned in New York and hopefully come up with something amazing...the show will go on!
