garment April Johnston ever made was her prom dress. She first realized she had potential as a designer when she was in high school and made her prom dress and artistically painted and decorated her room. She has a bachelor's degree in fashion design from SCAD and was accepted to show at the 2010 SCAD fashion show.

When she's designing, she likes listening to Caspa and Rusko, dub step techno or A Perfect Circle. She thinks blazers are a fashion must. She says she can illustrate a beautiful sketch and bring it to life as a garment. Among her design influences, she counts the decayed beauty of abandoned asylums or morgues. Her manifesto is to "destroy, to create."

Her favorite designers are Alexander McQueen and John Galliano.
