The name of my line for the FIG fashion show is called Kol Kollection, which was suggested by one of my designer friends. I chose this name because I felt like the outfits I designed represented a collection rather than a set theme. And of course the "Kol" in kollection signifies my last name. I created 6 unique interlinked pieces based on my personal inspirations. My line accentuates and embodies the sensual side of femininity and shows the beauty in women no matter the height and size. I also named each of the pieces after my models because I believe that they are beautiful and positively unique in their own ways. I am so blessed to have these girls model for me, they are what made the garments so lovely.

"Most of you said that you want to be successful, but you don’t want it bad. You just kinda want it. You don’t want it bad than you want to party. You don’t want it as much as you want to be cool. Most of you don’t want success as much as you want to sleep! Some of you loves sleep more than they love success. And I am here to tell you today: If you are wanting to be successful, you have to be willing to give up sleep. You gotta be willing to work on having 3 hours or 2 hours of sleep. If you really want to be successful, somedays you might even have to stay up 3 days in a row. Because if you go to sleep, you might miss the opportunity to be successful. You gotta want to be successful so bad, that you forget to eat. That’s how bad you gotta want it." - Eric Thomas
"When you want to SUCCEED as bad as you want to BREATHE then you will be SUCCESSFUL" - Eric Thomas
