“Under Construction” was inspired by designing the new Mæt studio located in Tirana, Albania. During the renovations, I was moved by the different shapes, patterns, and details I was seeing in the architecture of my future space. Architecture has always spoken to me as a creative because of the lineage work that can exist in the space. So many beautiful changes can take place from the begging to the end of a project, which is where I believe fashion and architecture come to a head. After watching the space transform, I felt urged to signify this change in my sketchbook. I drew the movement I saw and I was encapsulated by the simplicity, yet the uniqueness of the use of lines. I instantly knew that basing my first collection after the construction of my new creative space was the right move. It took hard work and dedication to get to where I am and I am overjoyed that that could be represented in my first collection. It was not easy branching off on my own, but I could not be happier with where I am and where I have come from. I hope that when viewing and wearing my pieces, women feel a sense of freedom. Free to be who they are and work towards the goals and passions that matter most in their lives. While some of these ideas might seem far-fetched to others, or even still “Under Construction”, no task is too big with a determined heart and a joyous soul!
