About Me
Recent grad of design school, but been sewing and designing all my life. Now that I know there's another world to designing and sewing, I would rather spending my time designing and having others to make them - New to this side of the business - tried my hat at applying to companies - so until I get a nipple - no sense of wasting time - let's see what life is like - Hoping to meet lots of friends and finds leads on pattern and sample makers
Fashion Industry Experience
I've experimented with all areas of children, men, and women. My clients tell me I'm best at couture designs and costumes - I know I love fabric and my inspiration usually begins with the fabric - wow! I made my first wedding gown (my cousin's) in the 7th or 8th grade and plastic slip covers for my mother in the 9th grade and the rest is history. I've produced 4 fashion shows for myself as well as with other designers. Since graduation, I've been getting out more and meeting reacquainting myself with local designers that we've encouraged each others to keep focus and it's been very inspiring to watch evolved into awesome designers and people.

The 2nd Annual Columbus Model Quest was in town - "A Fashion for a Cause" - supporting the Central Ohio Diabetes Association. A great way to support such an important issue, for I'm sure we all know someone that is suffering from diabetes. Diabetes can hit the young, old, healthy, wealthy & wise - without education - many die at an alarming rate. With the proper education and treatment - many live long and healthy lives!!!!
