While I now work as a knitwear designer with my own line, I was an art/design student not too long ago.
It was after completing my senior thesis collection that I realized I truly wanted to work in knits. The collection was a nine-month long ordeal that involved endless hours of handiwork and lessons in patience. I learned how to machine knit and a new world of possibilities opened up.
The collection takes inspiration from the history and culture of the traditional Aran knits and the lives and stories of the fishermen who wore them.
