Throughout my 30+ years as a Designer & Consultant in the NY Fashion industry, the question I got most often from aspiring Designers is, "HOW can I become a Fashion Designer?!" It seems like an elusive goal for so many talented creatives who had the passion, but not the insider information they needed to start their own brand.
Life has a way of giving you clues when it's time to make a shift. And when "life" happened to me 20 years ago, I found myself at a major, life altering crossroads. I had to close my eyes...and walk away from Fashion. It was 100% the right choice for me and my family, but it was a HUGE blow to my career.
At the time, I thought that was absolutely the end of the road... ...but, ...sooner than I thought possible, things did settle at home, and my creative juices started to flow again. And I REALIZED something. With my knowledge and diverse industry experience, I COULD START AGAIN!!! I was in a unique position, armed with the insider knowledge I needed to launch my OWN brand. So, I did just that! And from that moment on, never looking back, I've lived life on my own terms... and let me tell you, it feels reeealy good.
