Fashion Design Resume
New York, NY
New York, NY
My strength is in creating beautifully draped garment in fabrics with luxurious feel. I am interested in the whole design process from finding inspiration, creating mood board, sketching out ideas and develop a sample garment through draping, pattern making and sewing. My aesthetic is elegant, sophisticated, sensual and fluid - having these aesthetic values in mind I continue to create and find new concepts for my design.
