Transformative Fashion that Makes You Shine

Going to transformative festivals and events has had a huge impact on my personal growth. During my first Burning Man, I remember being amazed at the variety and beauty of the costumes people wore and how expressively they danced. I'd never seen people completely let go and enjoy the moment. For me, costumes are a way to express your inner goddess and let your soul shine when dancing.

As a former fashion design student and history major, I love mixing elements of historical fashion with festival fashion to create a look that's out of this world- costumes that increase the magic of the festival experience.

More than anything, I love to dance, so I incorporate elements like sparkle fabric and fringe to emphasize movement and convey how each wearer interprets music in their own special way.
