What does joy mean to you?

To me, joy is spending time with the people I love and getting to do things I love like designing. Joy is also the little things that make me happy like cooking with my family, watching sunsets, surfing, going on bike rides, and more. Joy also means making other people happy and giving to people in need.

What are some of the small things you celebrate?

One of the small things that I celebrate is when I finish sewing a new design and get to see it all come together. I also love the feeling when I get to wear one of my design for the first time.

Tell us about a really special time in your life, and why you treasure it.

Presenting my collection at New York Fashion Week was such an incredible experience. I got show my one-of-a-kind designs to an amazing community of people from fashion icons to family and friends. I loved seeing everyone wear my designs that night and come together to support dreams.

We all have trying moments. What is something positive you did or chose to focus on to keep you moving forward?

When I see people wearing my collection and feeling so happy and confident in it, it makes me want to create more!

Tell us about someone who's been a positive influence
in your life.

My mom is an amazing positive influence. She supported me with my dream to start Theme and she encouraged and inspired me to never give up and go after my goals.

And we have to ask: what is your go-to Terez print?

I love them all! But the stars are my absolute favorite!

Shop Stars

Last but not least: what's your favorite cake flavor?

I would say that my favorite cake flavor is double chocolate.
