You’re known for your vibrant, globally-inspired prints and bold hues. Where do you gather inspiration for such amazing and unmistakable designs?

M: Travel is a huge source of inspiration for me. As is nature and the spiritual world.


Speaking of cool prints, any tips on how to pull off the whole mixing prints trend cohesively?

M: If you’re going to mix prints, one tip is to mix a larger print with a smaller print so you’re not competing with two large prints together. It’s also nice to mix solids in!

 

When you go on summer getaways, what are some wardrobe essentials that you always pack?

M: I always pack an assortment of cover ups and colorful sarongs to use as anything from a beach blanket to a turban to a wrap.
