ABOUT THE COLLECTION

Phoenix ’96 was inspired by the idea that we are each the phoenix, or hero, of our own lives. At a young age, I was blessed with not only a curiosity, but also a corresponding fire in me that was transformed into an all-consuming passion for fashion design. In pursuing this passion, however, I faced the harsh realities of the ‘bullies’ of my youth and of the real world. Every time I felt beaten down, hopeless, or like giving up, I raised my head and stood back up stronger and more determined than ever before. I am the embodiment of a Phoenix, rising from the obliteration that could, should, but will never be my hopes, dreams, and visions for the future.

 

No matter the magnitude of the obstacles in our way, we must ignite a fire from within and fight for what we believe in... so I fight back. But I fight in such a way that empowers not only myself, but those around me. A way that spreads a message to help others with similar stories. A way that allows us to keep our dignity, our humanity, and ourselves in the process. A way that allows me to Wear My Boxing Gloves With Lace.

 

This unisex collection celebrates the excellence of humanity, embracing all races, genders, and ethnicities to allow us each to express our own, unique inner Phoenix.
