Scholl earned her Master of Fine Arts degree in Fashion and Knitwear Design from the Academy of Art University School of Fashion, and her Fall 2013 collection brings together her seemingly separate fields of study.

Through her garments, she sought to explore the often sexually obsessed nature of queer culture, and the duality of pain and glamour that can come with it. She constructed her collection from wool, cotton and wool knit, and embellished pieces with glass beads.
