Fashion Design Degree & Work History

My work history involves 25 years experience in the Miami garment industry. My fashion background includes a fashion design degree, seven years as a Missy designer, illustrator of fashion catalogs, technical design, pattern making and grading, sewing, purchasing, quality control and production management. I’ve worked in most every textile ranging from spandex to ultra suede. From story boards to tech packs, I am very well rounded. I have initiated and implemented efficient work flow procedures; I have a background of overseas travel to Bangladesh and Guatemala as production manager. I have also worked as a technical designer and operations coordinator serving accounts J.C. Penney, Wal-Mart, Costco, Lane Bryant & Willow Ridge.
