Samantha is a creative designer with a technical background in electrical
engineering and a passion for sustainable alternative fashion. Clothing is
an essential form of self-expression in addition to a societal necessity, but
the current industry causes major environmental destruction. Her previous
projects begin with an exploration of interactive and colorful wearables
and installations; however, her work has evolved towards a focus on
improving human mental health and the health of our planet's ecosystems.
She is now dedicated to the research and development of sustainable
fabrics using biodegradable and upcycled resources and innovative low
energy small scale production methods.
