For our senior thesis, we had the luxury to choose anything we wanted to do to showcase our skills. For mine, I chose to showcase my skills in product development, event planning, planning and merchandising and research and development to create a 5 piece eyewear capsule collection of eyewear for Want Les Essentials. While the brand has several product categories thus far, they have nothing in the eyewear sector so I took the opportunity to develop a collection for the brand based on their latest accessory collections. Collaborating with an industrial designer to help develop the frame styles, we were able to develop unique pieces that were quintessential to the brands minimal aesthetic. 


A journey can be the moment when we step outside of ourselves, shift our perception, open our minds, and deeply consider what is important.
