I'M ALL ABOUT INCLUSIVITY, WELLNESS, & MOVEMENT BASED DESIGN!
Hey there! I’m Anna. I am a future and innovation-minded apparel designer raised just outside of New York City. I come from a line of tinkerers and builders, who taught me the value of thinking with my hands and leading with my heart. I attribute my empathetic and iterative design practice to these roots.
I am an observant leader that thrives in collaboration, curiosity, and innovation. I believe that we should all have the opportunity to experience wellness, navigate the world through an inclusive lens, move daily, heal our earth, and learn something new every day!
I am currently freelancing apparel design for athletic-wear start-ups and major sportswear brands. As I imagine a post-pandemic world, it is increasingly more important to prioritize innovation within the apparel industry. I provide creative approaches from advanced concepts, to tech packs, to 3D visualization.
The COVID-19 lockdown disrupted our exercise patterns, caused a depression spike, and our guts to spill over our pants. The big question is how might we slowly ease the population back into a more normal movement routine to battle the physical and mental ramifications of the lockdown?
TOKYO OLYMPICS 202X, WOMEN'S GYMNASTICS
My design of the 202X Women's Gymnastics leotards and podium kit reflects on the growth of this sport after a heroic statement by several of it's athletes in the United States. Following several years of active change within the organization, these gymnasts will show off a more progressive, empathetic, and stylish sport.
SLEEP: WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING!
Modern sleep research has shown us the incredible value of a good night's rest. This project explores the question of how we can harness the power of sleep to have more productive, creative, and happy days.
My design school thesis is growing legs! I might not be able to show you everything as I begin production and search for funding, but please enjoy the things that made me excited about this project to begin with.
This project was created on the Adidas Campus in Portland, OR. Tasked with a list of materials, my partner and I created a new system of padding for the increasingly changing sport of ice-hockey. Taking it down to the youth-level allowed us to make significant changes.
