As a little child I always knew I was going to engage in something creative as my life’s work, but it was still unsure in what craft. Studying graphic design and photography at The Corcoran School of Art, in Washington,D.C. opened me up to thinking about color, space, lines, forms, and expression. It was here I found a love for working with my hands. Creating became my passion and subsequently I pursued my studies at the London Image Institute.
For the past 15 years, I have mastered a unique style for Thembe Fashions. I started creating couture designs for local singers and musicians in Washington,DC and now in Barcelona. I have put together countless trunk and fashion shows throughout the DC area. In addition, participated in numerous shows in Maryland, Washington, DC, Virginia and New York promoting my everyday high casual couture looks suitable for all styles and sizes.
Upon my first trip to Europe in my early 20's I was the most impressed and inspired with Barcelona. The panoramic views, bold colors and shapes from Gaudi Park, the geometric stone tiled side walks and sense of ease in the air were all factors to why I chose to have my career in design full time in Barcelona.
