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.
