I am senior at FIT majoring in Fashion Design, specializing in sportswear. I think fashion appeals to my aesthetics when it is both functional and artistic. In other words, I envision designing garments to be wearable, flexible, comfortable, and luxurious. Ultimately, I decided to come to Fashion Institute of Technology in New York to study fashion design. In my sophomore year, I was selected by a process of portfolio submission to be in the Art specialization. It is a challenging group of classes that involve a considerable amount of independent study. In my third year, I won a first place award in the Collective X Designow Runway Show. I was competing with 28 semifinalists from world-famous fashion schools such as FIT, Parsons, and Pratt. I interned in the ready-to-wear, sweater, eveningwear, and menswear design departments at many different companies. This work experience took me from the classroom to the real fashion world.
