First collection to go down the runway at thee Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami, Florida of 2013. Caitlin Kelly Designer Swimwear and I had become friends when meeting in Las Vegas at Fashion Alley. We instantly had the design chemistry! She had invited me out to embellish her swimwear presentation at Nolcha NYFW. Since then we have been collaborating on various projects and this Summer 2013 collection I designed around her swimwear and my inspiration of the ocean.
