Upon graduation from Fidm, I had the amazing opportunity to intern for Creative director Stephen Kamifuji of Genlux magazine (an up and coming high-end fashion magazine based in Beverly Hills) whom I met while volunteering at La fashion week. My experience at the magazine gave me insight on what it took to put together looks, create relationships with designers and how to properly advertise and market the vision of specific designers we worked with.
I later moved on to work with swimwear designer Katty Miu-ho. Our design team created the swimwear collections for Tommy Hilfiger, Guess, Hurley, Ella Moss and St.John.
My job consisted of working with garment construction, checking in fabric, fittings, creating tech packs and making theme boards . My experience there lead to an attempt at expanding my ideas into the world of accessories specifically eyewear design. Eyewear gave me the opportunity to open myself to being edgy and allowing myself to fully think outside of the box.
I recently had the opportunity to live in Europe where each day was spent observing, studying and talking to the fashionistas that consumed the streets of major European cities. Now that i\'ve returned, I\'d love to share and contribute my ideas, visions and insights.
