I recently graduated from the International Academy of Design and Technology with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design. I am currently seeking a full time entry level position in the fashion industry. I recently had an internship with designer Zac Posen in New York City as a Fashion Design Intern where I was responsible for assisting head designers, trend research, look boards, fashion show lineups, creating new sew tests and patterns in preparation for the Spring 13' Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Show, and maintaining vendor relations with fabric and supply purchases. Previous to this experience I have had a total of 6 years working in retail at Hollister Co. and Juicy Couture. Working in retail I attained great customer service skills, visual merchandising experience, selling techniques, and knowledge of keeping up with current trends. Growing up in Florida I have always been very passionate about swimwear and focused mainly on designing swimwear throughout school. I would love to fulfill a job in the swimwear industry and am willing to relocate to fulfill a position.
