Q: What led you to become a designer for Azazie?

Q: What led you to become a designer for Azazie?

A: I love developing new skills and broadening the categories I’ve designed for. My time spent working as a bridal consultant exposed me to the different techniques and details that go into making a gown. I’d flip the dresses inside out and observe the workmanship. I was hired as a sales associate, but during slow days I’d sneak off to the alterations room and beg the head seamstress to teach me new things. The job was commission based so I quickly learned how to find the right dress for each bride’s unique aesthetic and silhouette. It is so rewarding to see someone’s face light up over a gown you picked out for them. Being able to design wedding dresses today is a really special experience for me.

Q: What led you to become a designer for Azazie?

A: My grandmother was a seamstress so I knew from a very young age I always wanted to be a fashion designer. While I was studying fashion design at FIDM, I interned for a LA based designer where I worked on red carpet gowns and music video outfits. My first job after graduating was at a high-end luxury bridal boutique where I fell in love with wedding dresses. I worked as a Seamstress Assistant where I was mentored by some of the best couture seamstresses in the world. Working at Azazie has given me the opportunity to flourish and grow as a designer.
