My Story

My first atelier in Philadelphia, 1991 and Paris, 1998

 

I grew up in a large family and an art filled environment.  My Mom encouraged us at an early age to realize our natural gifts and talents, and work on being the best at them.  I was very good at drawing and sewing and I had a love for all things, “Paris Chic”... I would stay up late working on designs and sketches, or reading about fashion history and my favorite designers in magazines.  I knew I wanted  to be a fashion designer.  I received a lot of support and mentoring from love ones and friends to help me pursue my dream...

After getting my degree in Fashion Design, I established a couture atelier to design custom fit clothing and creative wardrobe for individual lifestyles.  I taught a variety of fashion courses at Temple University and Moore College of Art and Design.
