"The arabesque is a form of artistic decoration consisting of 'surface decorations based on rhythmic linear patterns of scrolling and interlacing foliage, tendrils' or plain lines, often combined with other elements."

Main Goal

Create a collection based on the inspiration.


My inspiration came from Moroccan architecture and culture.


This Kaftan is digitally printed on a 5-momme silk. I created the motifs digitally and printed on the silk to create this stunning dress.

My Role

I participated in trend and consumer research in order to create a Kaftan that is modern and luxurias


The motif and color inspiration for the dress came from Magnolia Trees.

This furniture collection used several different surface design techniques in order to create a comprehensive collection. Different techniques used included: embroidery and beading, screen printing, immersion dyeing, digitally printing, laser cutting, and laser etching. 

My Role

This collection was a group effort from me and my peers. I was the group leader, so it was my responsibility to make sure everyone completed on time.



Santa Fe is a collection of Jacquard woven fabrics that was inspired by the Kravet brand "Museum of New Mexico." The end use of the collection is for home furnishing.

Main Goal

Create a cohesive collection based on the inspiration and work around the limitations of the technology used.

Research was done through Fashion Snoops. Color pallete contains blushed tones, pulled from desert florals.
