When I was four my great-grandmother passed away. I could still faintly remember going to visit her in her Manhattan apartment. Although I never got to know her as well as I would have wanted to, I got my love for fashion design from her. She was a strong, Independent mother who made and tailored garments to make ends meet for her family. She was an amazing designer that could have gone far. When I was a young girl, I would sketch designs and try to create them. At just 11 years old I knew this love for fashion had to become my life and that’s when I set my mind on going to FIT. My love for fashion has grown even stronger now that I am designing intimate apparel; it’s an unexplainable feeling.
