Shira is currently a Junior at Brown University majoring in Biology with strong interests in fashion design and environmental sustainability. Through creating wearable and unique pieces using a variety of secondhand and ethically-sourced materials, she hopes to explore solutions to environmental issues within the fashion industry. In general, she’s really interested in making the fashion industry more sustainable and better integrated with the natural world around us.

Shira currently serves as a Design Team Director for Fashion@Brown, one of Brown University’s largest student-run organizations. To date, she has created three runway collections for the annual Brown Fashion Week runway show: Convergence (2024), Metamorphosis (2023), and Second Bloom (2022). Second Bloom was featured in StyleWeek 2022 alongside other emerging student and professional designers. Outside of F@B, she worked as a design intern for 3.1 Phillip Lim during New York Fashion Week (fall 2023), and is constantly taking on new sewing projects and expanding her creative repertoire through learning new skills and techniques. 

Shira is also a recipient of the Spring 2023 Brown Arts Institute (BAI) Student Grant, and 2024 BAI Rolling Grant.
