A Little More About Me

Fashion WorkI figured this would be a great place to give you a little bit of background about myself. Ever since I was a little girl I had always had a fasination with fashion. I loved dresses, skirts and especially shoes. This did not change growing up as a teenager and I thought I would see if I could make a career out of my love for fashion. I was lucky and got accepted into FIDM and from there I have worked for a couple of different companies and brands, including the following.


Wanting to move from online to retail, I ended up getting a position with Coach in the design department. I have only been here for a few months but I am loving every minute of it. Getting discount coach handbags is a great perk of the job afterall and getting a chance to design handbags for one of the most recognizable brands has been absolutely amazing. The entire design process from start to finish was something kind of new to me, but I am catching on and have helped in a few designs that you will likely see in your local Coach stores over the coming months. I will definitely update this space with a link to a couple of these designs after production is finished.


Prior to Coach, I worked for almost two years at the online fashion company JustFab who sells primarily womens shoes and handbags. However I was not on the JustFab side of things and was with another brand called Fabletics which is in the womens workout clothing space. I actually was a big part in designing some of their top selling yoga pants (the top 3 on the link provided in fact!) and it was a very fun and rewarding experience. However the online world of fast fashion was a little too much for my tastes and I felt that I needed to slow things down a bit, which is why I decided to move on to a more retail focused company.


My career started off with Zappos and I was here for over 3 years. I started off as an intern writing copy for womens clothing products and eventually moved on to becoming a part of their customer acquistion department. But this really was not my forte. I wanted to get into designing fashion, be it shoes, clothing, handbags or whatever! Zappos ultimately was not going to be where I wanted to spend my next few years, but it was a decent job to get me started on the right foot and I am very happy I started out here.

That pretty much sums up my experiences thus far. I'll be looking to add more content and info to this space in the near future.
