Comme Des Garçons: Having grown up around the designer's clothes, Kovin now shares her mother's love for CDG. She's collected dozens of pieces over the years. "I'm most inspired by their pattern-making — they're always coming up with new techniques and constructions," says Kovin. "But I need to start selling some of my pieces on eBay. If I’m going out, I would rather wear one of my own dresses."
