I’m a twenty-something professional living and residing in New York City. Fashion and design have been passions of mine since I was incredibly young and they were interests that my mother helped to foster. At the age of 7, I produced my first fashion sketch, albeit one of limited sophistication, out of a mixture of crayons and colored pencils. By the time I was in middle school (and when my mother deemed it safe enough for me to operate a sewing machine), I made my first article of clothing. And the rest, they say, is history. I believe that fashion is an unique art form that not only has the ability to reach many on a regular basis and in their daily lives, but also serves as a means for individuals to express who and what they are.
