Her designs are influenced by her urban background from growing up in the city, combined with her transition to the suburbs. Rebecca’s designs are playful, sexy, yet classy and sophisticated while combining a twist of classics and urban street wear. Her clothing are designed for those who are not afraid to stand out. She loves color and the idea of contrasting colors, textures and prints into one look intended to make every one of her pieces a must have piece.

She hopes to not only be successful as a designer but to create a new platform in the fashion industry. She has always wanted to help the less fortunate, particularly Foster care and Group home children and teens. At the age of 15 she made herself a promise to do so in any way possible and participated in several pageants in hopes to help raise awareness, while winning titles like Miss Congeniality. Recently, she saw an opportunity to not only help others but to help herself and fellow design students by creating a company called Designing a Difference. The company offers a platform where new designers are given the opportunity to show their designs through a series of fashion shows, while raising money for charities. She continues to learn and grow in her art and is excited and more than ready for what her future career holds for her.
