My name is Issa Mello and I am a student at the University of Minnesota - College of Design, majoring in Apparel Design with minors in retail merchandising, design, and French. What inspired me to pursue apparel design is my drive to accomplish novel solutions to different problems. I am also interested in the sustainable and socially responsible sector of apparel design. My ideal goal is to find a position that will challenge my creativity while maintaining a focus on sustainability.
