Milwaukee Fashion Week was an absolute dream come true! It was the first fashion show without any minor setbacks or drama. Everything from the models to hair and makeup to backstage to the actual show could not have gone anymore smoothly. I have to thank my entire team of interns, models, hair and makeup, photographers, family, and friends for all of their love, support, and hard work over the past six months. This amazing production would not have been possible without you all! 

Thank you to Milwaukee Fashion Week for allowing me to participate in this amazing show and for creating a stage for me to showcase my latest work. The venue could not have been more perfect!

Thank you to Wantable for being such a fabulous sponsor of Milwaukee Fashion Week and for making this show possible! 

Thank you to my girl gang of beautiful models. You all truly do bring my designs to life and I could not do it without all of you! 

Thank you to the stellar hair and makeup team from Erik of Norway. You all made the girls glow and look their best, most beautiful versions of themselves. 

Thank you to all of my interns who have helped me tremendously over the past six months. Reilly, Vanali, and Claire, I cannot thank you enough for all of your support. You all are life savers! 

Thank you to all of my followers and supporters in person and on social media. I wouldn't be able to create bespoke lingerie if it wasn't for your interest and support!

Thank you to my parents and family members for supporting me and my vision every single day. You push me to shoot for the stars and pursue my dream on a daily basis. Thank you for letting me do what I love each and every day!

Thank you to my boyfriend, Benjamin Dean, for being my voice of reason and never letting me give up, even when the going gets rough. You make me laugh when I want to cry, feed me when I'm hangry, and love me when I am at my lowest. I couldn't do life without you! 

Behind each and every photo shoot and show, there is a TEAM of people that make it all possible. I wouldn't be here doing what I am doing today without the support system and network of people that I get to work with on a daily basis. Thank you to everyone who made this Milwaukee Fashion Week show possible!
