Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
I am a Junior Apparel Design Major with a Minor in Costume History and Culture at the University of Delaware. Expected to graduate with a BS in Apparel Design in May 2016. I have been designing for seven years and just recently found my niche. I took an Independent study course in lingerie this past summer and fell I love with intimate and lounge wear design. I am currently working in a collaboration with Destination Maternity and the University in a summer fellowship program with the intimate apparel technical team. This coming fall I will be designing and constructing my senior capstone collection that will be presented in a student run fashion show in the spring. Synergy is a fashion group that organizes and hosts the University's Annual Fashion Show. I held the position of Judge Coordinator this past year and was recently elected Vice President for next year. Further, I have accepted an opportunity to study abroad in Paris for the 2016 Winter Session where I can finally fulfill my dream of working and experiencing Paris Fashion Week firsthand and diving head first into the Parisian culture.
