Hey there everyone!
Manic Pop started in October 2011 as a journey to document and showcase my fashion design work as well as try new techniques out, make some sewing friends across the world to also discuss design and art. I am highly influenced by vintage 60s and 70s looks - my favorite style being mod. I also love pop art, public art, and major metro cities like NYC.
I am a pattern designer and surface designer.
My work has been featured on Bustle and I've been incorporated in art shows in Chicago. I have also had my own solo exhibition in August 2013 at Lomography in Chicago.
If you haven't checked it out already, I have a variety of clothing and accessory items up on my Kin Custom shop with my own original prints on them! There are also fabrics available for purchase in my Spoonflower shop. New things being added all the time to both!
I got my BFA in Fashion Design from the Illinois Institute of Art -- Chicago in 2007.
