Fitness is my passion. I enjoy designing for athletic bodytypes. These are done in marker and colored pencil.

Recently, Rugby was added to the 2016 Olypmics. Below are a few of my ideas for an olympic rugby apparely line. As the fastest growing women’s sport in Europe, Rugby is becoming more and more popular throughout the world.

A UC inspired body-wear design sketches.

| Trend Forecasting |

This project taught me how to identify and organize upcoming trends and inspiration. Not only did I identify major trends and their components, but I established color palletes as well.

| Blog | Originally this blog was started as an assignment to record fashion inspiriation & experiences. After the grade I re-designed it to be a good source healthy of fitness information and inspiration as well as a a personal record of my own progress, experiences, and opinions on fitness culture.
