Handmade sustainable products by yours truly.
As a recent graduate with a BFA in Fashion Design from Marist College in New York, I knew this was just the beginning.
After winning the title Designer of the Year, my TikTok showcased my concept of creating clothing out of Shein bags. The world was ready to see more. Nearly 19 million people viewed that video and almost all followed with the question "how can I purchase this?"
My designs were featured in the Wall Street Journal, BuzzFeed, YKK, and many more publications. The runway collection soon after was on the red carpet for the Tribeca Film Festival. Being mind blown by the attention my designs were getting, I was then invited back to WSJ to be on their podcast "The Journal".
It took some post-college adjustments to finally sit down and create this site, to now sell the
products that you have been asking for. Time is of the essence and my biggest goal is to make this my full-time role with the help of you. We can only start somewhere!
If you haven't checked out my TikTok @avagrand, it is linked on my homepage. This gives a better visual of my process.
With much love and designing ahead,
