Hi, My name is Christa Ciociola and I recently graduated with my degree in Fashion Design. I've been doing digital art since my freshman year of highschool, and making handmade clothes and accessories for about eight years now. I have my own line of clothing and accessories called Handmade Hipnotics which is inspired by the native american all natural and earthy feel. I use recycled materials in my collection such as, leather skirts, cut up t-shirts, sweaters and pants to make other articles of clothing and handbags. You can check out my work on www.behance.net/handmadehipnotics. My ultimate goal as a Fashion Designer would be to land a job anywhere in the surf and skate industry so I can get my foot in the door, and my unique, nature inspired designs noticed all over the world. I've grown up in South Florida all my life, right near the beach, and have always been one to browse around the local surf shops after a long day at the beach just to check out the new popular styles for this season. Seeing all my favorite brands hiring on this website gives me the hope that one day I will get the phone call of my dreams and move off to California to design with some of the top brands in the surf in skate industry. For now, I'm taking all the opportunities I can to gain experience in the fashion industry so I can be well equipped for that lucky day where I land the job of my dreams! I'm 100% willing to relocate out of Florida for any design career opportunity. I'm also willing to start as an intern and work my way up in any company. Whatever it takes to prove how passionate I am about designing for the surf and skate industry IM IN!!!
