Holly has been designing clothing from the young age of thirteen. Her early influences came from her lively dynamic parents and suburban upbringing in Pittsburgh, PA. She loved spending her kid days drawing and prancing around in costumes with her friends, hanging out in her tree house and playing in the woods. Later in the 90’s she became obsessed with computers, the rave scene, hackers, science fiction, and electronic music. Creating fashions for these events became her passion. She had her first fashion show at age fifteen, showcasing a collection of avante guard, sci-fi inspired party clothes under the name of Xenon 54.
