advice for fashion design

One of my greatest accomplishments and experiences was going to NYC and studying fashion design at Parsons New School for Design.  I was extremely nervous about how I would fit in and compare to others that might have more experience in fashion than me (and were most likely younger). My summer intensive course covered everything from conceptualization to creating a runway collection - like Project Runway.  I learned about fashion illustration, pattern-making, and how to sew (on an industrial machine).  For the class, we had to design a 10 piece collection - and sew one of the garments - in a very short time! I had four days of sewing. At the end, I was thrilled (and extremely thankful) to be at the top of my class. The whole experience was so rewarding - a once in a lifetime opportunity, which I am so grateful for.

Now, I am using what I learned to turn my true dream of designing my own clothes into a reality.  I am busy making prototypes and putting together the final plans.  I hope to be sharing more later this fall.

Every great thing takes time - I have learned.  Patience is key.  Stay tuned for more information...
