Quintessa says, "As a designer, I strive to create garments that are a reflection of who a person is. Construction details, interesting prints, and textures are key components in my designs. All combined or separately used to give each garment it's own unique feel. Inspired by details found in design, fine arts, and urban landscapes. These initial inspirations serve as the start to my concept development. As a designer I strive to create beautifully crafted garments."
