The La Bella Donna Collection

The Fall ’17 collection was inspired by the geometric patterns of the intricate masonry of Italy. While traveling throughout Italy, I couldn’t help but notice all details of everything that surrounded me from the cobblestones and floor tiles, to the building facades, wooden doors and archways.

I usually design with a lot of color, but black and white symbolized recent happenings in the political and social climate of today which highlight the issues of black vs. white within our nation and around the world.


The La Bella Donna collection combines the flair of Italy with the flavor of Philly; brings together the boldness of black and the starkness of white, and tops it off with a little sprinkle of glam.
