Are you able to inform me somewhat bit about the way you began out and ultimately discovered your means into each portions of your type occupation?
I grew up in L.A., and I at all times knew I sought after to be a manner dressmaker. When I used to be a child, I did not know what being a stylist was once. We had a circle of relatives good friend who was once a costumer, and he or she was once my youth hero. As a result of that was once the nearest factor I knew to what I sought after to be.
I at all times sought after to be a manner dressmaker, and my function was once to visit FIT in New York Town proper after highschool, however Sept. 11 came about, however that derailed my transferring to New York Town.
I did a semester at SMC [Santa Monica City College], after which I went to FIDM. I went for type design. I had a trainer—I even bear in mind her title; it was once Mrs. Owens—and he or she was once a dressmaker. She in fact had simply gotten a role as head dressmaker of Apple Backside denims.
She was once portfolio trainer, and I bear in mind she advised me that I might be a excellent stylist. She had up to now labored at MTV as a stylist, and he or she offered me to what that was once as a result of I did not in reality know what it was once. I interned for her at Apple Backside when I graduated. Then I interned at a couple of other denim firms. I ultimately were given a role with a small L.A. emblem as ladies’s dressmaker, and I used to be there for 4 years.
There, I met stylists, and I began helping. I did freelance design when I left, however I targeted extra on styling.
