When I ask myself how I want to be understood as a designer, I think about that transition from periwinkle blue to soft pinks and yellows when the sun rises. To me, the sun is a reminder that,
“everything will be okay. And so will I.”I want to share this feeling in everything I do. The sun feels like trust in a friend. Like safety in family. Like home. Maybe that’s why I always wanted to be a star when I was a kid. Perhaps I always was one.
There is something beautiful in sharing space with people who understand what it takes to maintain the integrity of what shaped you while being creative in a world not made for you. Having the oportunity to work alongside other Black, queer people across the globe deeply excites me.
California will always be home; however, I am eager to explore my love for art direction, fashion, dance, and film beyond the states in locations such as London, Paris, and Seoul. Until then, you can find me in the San Francisco Bay Area. My name is Airēs and if you think we can shine together, let’s chat.
