This submission is a collection of selected works, showcasing my journey of the creative processes within the design industry.
I founded XX-X LAB in 2019. It focuses on creating, experimenting and innovating, concentrating on the future of creative design.
What started out as a passion project outside work hours has led me to explore the world of footwear design and connect with creative directors at global brands, such as NIKE and Adidas.
I hope to be a role model to aspiring women designers and hope to represent women in the sneaker landscape; providing innovative designs for the world.
