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 sole designer, patternmaker, marketing manager, fabric buyer, alterations specialist and more. Clients chose from a wide selection of designer fabrics and had designs from my collection custom made. The offering began with coats and then was expanded to include short jackets, blouses, dresses, skirts and trousers. With the help of a sales team, I sold at boutique events. I had many repeat customers, some who were loyal custom clients for many years. The following are examples of my designs.
