Special Occasion

Coming from a family that had fashion in their blood, I always knew that one day I would fulfill my dream of becoming a fashion designer. When I was little, I found myself sketching dolls and matching the dolls with outfits. That triggered my love for designing. The love I have for clothing and that specific feeling I gained when I created a garment is what made me want to become a fashion designer. I chose the Special Occasions concentration because I love everything about evening gowns and wedding dresses. The construction is what fascinates me the most. I personally love lace and thinking of creating/designing with it is just breathtaking. Designing and creating a custom gown/dress for a specific customer has so much value because they are wearing a one-of-a-kind that was made by you. This is the true definition of why I design.
