ABOUT

Pink Marble

ABOUT ME

I am a freelance fashion designer from a small town in Michigan, and currently residing in the Washington DC area. I design womenswear, with a focus on bridal design. Several of my custom gowns have been published in magazines, including Italia Vogue's PhotoVogue.

 

I graduated with a Master's of Science in Apparel Product Development and Merchandising Technology from Central Michigan University in August 2019. Previously, I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's of Applied Arts from Central Michigan University, majoring in Fashion Design with a minor in Visual Merchandising. I have studied abroad multiple times, learning and working in the European fashion industry.
