Adia Kolell earned her Bachelor of Arts in both fashion design and philosophy. While Mount Mary initially empowered her to pursue her design dreams and helped make them a reality, she also found out along the way that philosophy interested her as well. She discovered that philosophy pushes her to be a stronger fashion designer by analyzing how she designs, how she can best design for the intended customer, and how to find the best process for development. 

Not only do garments clothe and protect our bodies, but they are the most readily available way to express ourselves every day. Adia aims to make joyful clothes that bring the wearer happiness. While her overall aesthetic is described as classic with a modern twist, she always adds a little humor to her designs as a personal touch. She wants to people to be comfortable in their own skin and to be excited to dress in her designs every day.
