SC: Tell us a bit about yourself!DN: I am a local native born and raised in Scarborough. I starting getting curious about designing back in 2018. The reason I took the leap into the fashion space was soley on I couldn’t find clothes that were unique enough in my size. I always wanted to stand and the only way to get that was designing my own garments.
