More Information

I'm a fashion designer with over a decade of experience in design, development, and manufacturing. A little over three years ago I shifted from fast fashion to sustainable design. I started my own brand focusing on baby and toddler sweaters trying to utilize no new materials.

As a hired designer, I have created a range of products from full "sweater dressing" apparel, soft fashion accessories, to cut-and-sew performance apparel. which sold in the contemporary market and department stores. In my last position, I lead a design and product development team that created private label accessories for many of the nation's leading retailers. As retail demands shift, I prioritize on-demand manufacturing and direct to consumer sales for my own brand.

Looking forward, I am helping the fashion industry define sustainability. My shift came when I saw the amount of waste created by a small design firm after a spring cleaning. How will you approach your shift?
