“Since I was little I’ve loved dressing up in my won concoctions –
corsets from cardboard, ball gowns from blankets.

“I was introduced to true fashion though the charity fashion shows I
organized throughout high school and university.

“Eventually I started my own line – Karpe Diem: Montreal Haute
Couture – in the spring of 2009. The collection debuted at Fashion Wars Volume II, an up-and-coming designers’ competition.

“The garments are one-of-a-kind and are guaranteed never to be duplicated, available through custom orders in the Montreal, Ottawa
and Toronto areas.

“When I am not working or designing, I travel the world, dance salsa and
search for that perfect cup of tea.”
