Colores sin sabores
(Colors without flavors)

In this dress, I find so much of my past, my present, my future and overall myself. I liked the feeling of making something larger than life, three-dimensional, and bold. It represents who I am - outgoing, daring, and funky, always exploring new things and getting my hands dirty. Mixing different media and then stepping back to see how they blend and contrast with one another is an amazing feeling. I went out of my own comfort zone to create this piece, deciding to incorporate naturalist and artist Charlie Harper’s vibrant colors and bold patterns. However, most importantly I enjoyed having the liberty to express myself in my own self-defined project, set my own goals, boundaries, and create my own masterpiece.
