Sallie Caputi-Richards


I am a graduate of Florida State University with a Bachelors of Science in Retail Merchandising and Product Development. My passion for this industry was planted in my heart as a young girl as I watched my grandmother create patterns and sew her own clothing. From early childhood on my sewing machine has been one of my best friends and one I plan to keep life long. This amazing hobby brought me to the decision to pursue a life in this world. I was president and founder of the sewing club in my high school for 4 years. I also completed multiple course within the high school curriculum for fashion design and construction. After deciding this is where I wanted to be in life I went in search of more detail of this world. This led me to FSU where I earned my degree in Retail Merchandising and Product Development. Since then I have made the long jump to being a resident in NYC and starting my career. As of now I am searching to further this life in the fashion industry in Los Angeles.
