  • The future fascinates me – the progression of mechanics, and the transformation of culture and music.  Body physics merged with progression are my influences, but my endpoint always arrives at the question – how can clothing evolve?

    I started Balsa NYC in 2015, with my business partner Tash Shore, to explore new approaches to cut, tailoring and material.  Innovation comes in the form of soccer jerseys crossbred with oversized polos, moto zippers with tech t-shirts and transformative skirts. My goal with Balsa is to create Ready-To-Wear that is a fusion of streamlined staples while still pushing creativity.
