2015 NOMINEE FOR BEST FASHION! | View all 2015 Nominees
Sent From Mars is an online store designing accessories based on geeky icons for everyday fandom fashion! I focus on clutch purses made from high quality leather and faux leather, sewn together with extraordinary precision, and created out of a love for movies and video games!
My design adventures started as a kid hand-sewing outfits for toys, which set the stage for Sent From Mars. A Design degree at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising led me to designing apparel, accessories and artwork for companies like Old Navy and Gymboree, and even getting to design some of my own game characters for Waka Flocka Flame in Wakaville.
With this industry experience, Sent From Mars was born, allowing me to bring my own geeky creations to life and pursue the things that I love! In addition to an online store, I also create geeky DIY projects including costumes, toys and décor for my blog Sent From Mars. These designs have been featured in geek publications like Fashionably Geek, and have made their debut on CBS Good Day Sacramento.
Bringing Geek-culture into the modern world is at the heart of every design and inspiring other to pursue their dreams is my ultimate objective!
