A GYPSY SPIRIT
I call many places home: from Costa Rica to California, and of course, Texas. I returned stateside after a year in Central America with a passion for beautifully fitting swimwear. Couple this design passion with a great respect and love for the environment, and so began my design career.
Right out of FIDM, I founded a sustainable swimwear label, CurleeBikini. I ran CB for 6 years, working alongside various retail management + marketing positions within the fashion industry. During this time, I self-taught into bespoke, technical design, I deepened my innate entrepreneurial spirit, and developed great acumen in the business of fashion.
Since my career began, I’ve been living and breathing fashion retail, product development, and apparel design. I have proven to lend growth and change management support to start-ups and corporations alike. I bring a technical mindset and efficiency, process-based methodology to creative, product development projects! Successful at tracking and analyzing the tiny details within a project, while also maintaining a macro vision towards achieving the strategic, long-term goals of the business. I have an intuitive sense for bringing order to chaos, and driving the project team towards progress despite unforeseen challenges. My passion remains in supporting fashion and lifestyle brands that have a hand in pushing the fashion industry towards greater sustainability.
Currently, I am working full-time for Esby Apparel and no longer available for freelance design projects. Never the less, don’t hesitate to reach out - I always enjoy connecting with other like-minded souls in the industry, or those interested in joining the fashion industry.
