Tell us about yourself.
I am a fashion author and a fashion entrepreneur. I specialize in fashion for health. I offer the methods and solutions on ‘medicinal’ fashion design + apparel. I educate and teach fashion for health concepts that support the mind, body, and spirit.

My comprehensive manual, a big-picture book inherently interweaves all things fashion. To achieve a circular, new, healthy approach, a multi-faceted approach is addressed. A diverse culmination of topics- from fashion psychology to fashion technology is included.
We are at the time of a spiritual awakening. The fashion industry is in a bit of transition right now. We are slowly catching on to producing and promoting fashion in pursuit of the mind/body/spirit.
My book speaks about multi-dimensional apparel as a part of the spiritual awakening. Meaning, fashion that supports us physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically, and spiritually.
I wanted to write a book that would be attributed as modern, fresh, and high-fashion for a new age. I have been fashion-obsessed, and I consider myself a fashion ‘psychic.’ I have spent a lot of time and energy creating new concepts for fashion both through artistic, philosophical and through a lot of research as well.

Modify this question to communicate a unique attribute of your book or the people you write about.
Naturally being an optimistic person, I noticed an emptiness and a lack of spirit and health in fashion, in general. It inspired me to write a book about modern, fresh, and high-fashion for the New Age: Healthy Fashion.
I am fashion intuitive. Over the years I have created interesting, new concepts on fashion that are both artistic, philosophical, and factual.
The idea of fashion and metaphysics is strong in your book. What about that idea inspired you?
I started writing the book when I moved to Mount Shasta, CA. The mountain there, Mount Shasta, is a large energy vortex. A lot of interesting things occurred over the course of time that led me to write the book. Part of the ideas book was inspired by Mount Shasta.
A lot of New Age activity occurs on Mount Shasta. I have been involved in esoteric and New Age subjects since I was a teenager. A lot of the influence behind the ‘spirituality + fashion’ and the ‘energy + fashion’ section of the book was from the connection that I have with this miraculous mountain, and the supernatural experiences that had occurred, and my natural gifts as a channeler and energy healer.
Is this book a part of a series?
I will be writing more books that will be in relation to my first book HEALTHY FASHION: THE DEEPER TRUTHS. It will not be part of a series, but many of the concepts in my first book will be discussed in-depth in my future books.
What is the “heart” of your story in HEALTHY FASHION?
The heart of the story is that the book supports the fact that fashion for health is unique to each individual. There are so many different ways fashion designs and apparel can be “healthy.” When the reader reads the book, the information will resonate with the reader, naturally.
Overall the heart of the book is the major fashion concepts that I have written about, some of them are Universal Fashion, Feng Shui Fashion, Fashion Archetypes vs. Stereotypes, Plant-tech fashion, etc.
A fresh, new approach to fashion: Fashion to awaken the soul/spirit
My work Healthy Fashion is a timely testament; what we need, as a part of the new paradigm of living holistically. It broadcasts evolutionary concepts that make fashion transcend its general unhealthy condition. Part of the concept of healthy fashion results in a fun and bountiful future. I appreciate the optimism and spirit of fashion that cures the ails of the body.
We all want more ways to feel and look healthy. Fashion can do just that, and I am here to show you how. There’s so much pain and suffering in the world! Fashion is and can be used as a tool to promote and create healing, health, and overall balance and harmony.
What was the most challenging part of writing this book?
I think the most challenging were the times when I had writer’s block. It was fun to write but there were times where I had writer’s block, which made it a challenge.
What drew you to write this particular fashion story?
I wrote healthy fashion, because I have experienced pain and suffering in my life, and I found fashion can be used as a tool to alleviate, treat, and cure illness. Also, I have found that the ultimate type of apparel is a garment that supports the body, and promotes mind/body health. I started designing and sketching when I was a teenager. I used it initially as a creative outlet. I would experiment and upcycled my clothing. I have a strong connection with fashion and apparel, in general, so many of the topics in the book are based on years of reflecting on my fashion and the fashion collective, and the fashion industry at large.
What other books have inspired you?
I love reading books. I like reading channeled New Age books. One New Age book which is one of my favorites is Telos by Dianne Robbins. Another New Age book is Hanna Kroeger’s New Dimensions in Healing Yourself. She is the author of over 20 novels, and I have read many of them. She was a master healer. A couple of fashion books that I have read that are a couple of my favorite memoirs are Bill Cunningham’s Fashion Climbing, and Christian Dior’s memoir Dior by Dior: The Autobiography of Christian Dior. A couple
