I'm no stranger to New York’s famed Garment District. With almost 10 years of design experience, I have perfected my craft studying under such prestigious designers such as, Phillip Lim, where I developed my appreciation for impeccable fit, superb construction, quality and fine details. I also worked at various design houses including Adam Lippes and R. Scott French designing collections, drafting patterns, package design and sourcing and managing sample rooms in NYC. This experience made me very fluent in managing garment production rooms throughout New York's Garment Center.
In 2006 I hired as the lead Woven’s Designer for the Perry Ellis Collection. For three years I designed all of the Perry Ellis Signature Fashion Shows under Creative Director, John Crocco, and also designed & managed the woven’s design team specializing in suits, vest, jackets, bottoms and outerwear.
In 2009 I consulted at Oxford Apparel designing men's sportswear collections and worked on private label brands and special projects for clients such as Gilt Groupe, Men's Wearhouse, Nordstrom and Saks. I designed all woven categories and created brand books and pitch boards to aid in the acquisition of new licenses like Sperry Topsider, Geoffrey Beene, Esquire and many more brands.
In 2015 I transitioned into my current design role at Men's Wearhouse. I now design for multiple men's brands at Men's Wearhouse. At Joseph A Bank under Chief Creative Director, Joseph Abboud, I helped launch and design all woven sportswear categories for the newly launched 1905 label.
