After working in the fashion industry for over 10 years I attended Parsons School of Design and earned an A.A.S. degree in Fashion Design. I then created a womenswear line called 24 Shades of Green, where I was the designer, patternmaker, alterations specialist and more. I had help marketing and selling the line at boutique events. Clients chose from a wide selection of designer fabrics and had designs from my collection custom made. The line started with vintage inspired coats then was expanded to include short jackets, blouses, dresses, skirts and trousers. I had many repeat customers, some who were loyal custom clients for many years. The following are examples of my designs.
