It's time to be honest. I'm not the stereotypical fashionista. I'm not going to tell you how a shade of lipstick will change your life, or what is the hot must-have item of the month. Don't get me wrong. I love fashion and I am passionate about design and trend forecasting. However, I am more even more passionate about people.
I have a vision for the future. I believe my greatest gift lies in my ability to see things as they are, envision what they can be, and make that vision a reality. My co-workers would describe me as a calculated risk taker. My friends would say I am "always in the right place at the right time." My greatest supporters would say I'm honest, hard working, and forward-thinking.
I am a customer driven designer focused on creative problem solving, cost savings, and precisions tailoring with professional level experience in an extensive range of fabrications. I have experience in trend forecasting for MPDClick.com and I am a discussion board moderator of Mudpie Fashion, Trends, and Culture, a Linkedin group comprised of over 19,000 industry professionals.
When I'm not working on technical design or forecasting, I'm image consulting for Raquel Schuler of Hydria, an independent Brazilian metal band. Working with a cross cultural team in Brazil, I built priority lists, set up a calendar, designed clothing, jewelry, social media, and marketing campaigns- helping Hydria gain a distribution contract with Spinning Records Japan in 2011. Most recently I contributed conceptual and stylistic design for their first official music video, "Reality Shows".
In 2011 I launched a Change.org campaign with co-petition organizer, Darryl Warren to "Please Make Alexander McQueen's "Savage Beauty" A Traveling Exhibition." Although the exhibition was not made to travel, our efforts garnered international press and attention from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
For fun I porch garden, teach tricks to my dog and cat, and write for my fashion and art blog: Kindred Closets.
My long term career goal is to inspire, enhance, and create a collaborative environment where all people feel accepted and loved so that together we may pave a path for a more beautiful future. I have many ideas I would love to share with the world about how to improve and revolutionize the future of industry and society. Given time and the right set of circumstances, I know these dreams will become a reality.
