Hire me

I am a student at the University of Delaware working toward my Bachelor's degree in Apparel Design. I have 7 years sewing and construction experience, as well as 4 years of pattern making experience. While attending university I sew and design in my spare time. I do various alterations, make my own garments and accessories, and have recently entered an evening gown in a design competition. Evening wear and bridal are fields I am most interested in designing for. I enjoy fashion sketching, and practice as much as possible. I take inspiration for design from photography and art. I specifically look at landscapes and street art. Music has been a large part of my life forever. I have been playing the guitar for 10 years. Music is another thing that gets incorporated into my designs regularly. In the future, I am working toward getting an internship in design so I can continue to improve my skills and learn more about the industry.
