I have over twenty years of professional experience in the fashion industry. However, the love of beautiful clothes and attention to style began much earlier. I began making my own clothes at 12, sometimes replicating costumes from favorite movies. After high school, I explored career options, a year’s study in fine arts, a year in basic liberal arts, and various courses in a myriad of subjects. It wasn’t until my sister suggested I study fashion that I actually discovered it was the direction that I had been seeking. I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising with a degree in Fashion Design. Since then, I have designed and created custom clothing, taken courses in what is known as French room millinery, created hats and headpieces for boutiques, bridal customers and the entertainment industry. For several years I was a costume designer’s assistant. During a transition in my career, I took a job in sales at a major brand department store. When the position opened, I applied for and became the store’s clientele specialist. It was here that I realized my passion for helping women with their clothing choices, so that they feel confident and attractive with their appearance which in turn elevates their sense of self worth and well being.
