Florence Canonoy was born and raised in Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands. She is currently a fashion design student at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California working towards receiving her BFA in Womenswear Design this Spring 2019. Strong silhouettes, clean lines, quality craft and thoughtful details are a signature when she designs. She enjoys the process of cut and construction, experimenting with innovative techniques, often containing an element of the unconventional in her designed collections.
Originating from an island moving into a big city, her inspiration is often drawn from the opposting elements —intricate, organically formed shapes of nature and the complexity of urban innovation, unifying the two to make new.
She designs for the woman who is bold, experimental and playful, someone who seeks comfort and versatility. The woman who wears designs that empowers and emboldens her adventurous spirit, pushing and challenging conventional design boundaries.
