How did you become interested in fashion design?
I initially became interested in fashion design as a young girl growing up in Texas learning how to sew with my grandma and Mom. My parents always encouraged me to be my authentic, creative self and I took that advice head on. I added fashion design as my double major in college and moved to NYC right after school to pursue my dreams.
What do you think are the most important skills for a fashion designer?
Passion and determination. You have to start somewhere, and you have to have a willingness to learn. Design is very subjective so don’t be discouraged if someone doesn’t see what you see. Fashion is art!
