Being a child with Barbie’s to play with; I constantly made clothes for my Barbie’s out of my socks with funny prints and all. I was always into painting, and sketching. At one point, I had the entire Spice Girls group painted on my room walls all with their own trendy style and look. I came back to design and sketching in College and found I had talent, from then on I continued to peruse the fashion design path.
