Here are a few questions with Michelle!

Who were a couple of your fashion icons growing up as a kid and teenager? 

As I kid I loved Cher.  What an icon….and all about fashion.  Then of course we move into the Madonna phase

What inspired you to start designing? 

It probably began with getting more decadent at Halloween.  My 1st trip  to Burningman was huge for inspiration and to motivator me to start making my own clothing.

Where do you draw inspiration from?

To this day I still get highly inspired from festivals such as Burningman.  I also use fashion magazine’s like Vogue and Elle  for inspiration
