  • If God Had a Shoe Fetish...
  • These stilettos are made from four Gideons bibles each. The upper is made from the covers of the books combined with metallic leather and the platform...yes, yes those are in fact the actual bible you are walking on, pages and all. 
  • This jewelry garment is comprised of gold rosaries and acts as the accompanying look to the stilettos 
  • Air Jesus; Walking on Water 
     
  • Jesus walked on water right? Now you can too. Inspired by the Air Jordan sneaker pattern, I manipulated the iconic image of the jumping Jordan (the Jesus of sneakers himself) and constructed a clear, water-containing sole to create these hand made sneakers. These also incorporate Gideon Bible covers 
  • This mesh and lace 'pope hoodie' and short ensemble accompanies the Walking on Water sneakers to create a full look 
  • All. Black. Every.Thing 
  • These 6-inch thigh high combat boots stamp the words "ALL BLACK EVERY THING" into whatever surface impressed upon. This statement acts as a reference to Lupe Fiasco's 2011 song, which imagines a world without racism. Also, Jay Z's lyric on the track "Murder to Excellence" off of the Watch the Throne album created alongside Kanye West the same year in which he declares this color palette as a fashion statement dedicated to stopping black on black violence.
     
  • The All Black Everything hoodie is comprised of leather cut-outs of the predominanalty black and brown continents/countries around the world collaged together in order to create a camouflage pattern. 
  • I Am The Female Yeezy 
  • Taking a still from the Kanye West "Power" video and the silhouette of theYeezy sneaker, I combined elements of gold leather and black patent python to create the female counterpart to West's male ego.
  • Leather, acrylic nails and boning come together to complete the look for the I Am The Female Yeezy sneaker heels 
  • Painted acrylic nails act as 'thorns' on this leather crown of thorns
