About

Hello, my name is Mark & I already have been designing clothes for about 10 years now. I have a A.A.S. degree in Accessories Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology and I have recently obtained my B.S. degree in International Trade & Marketing at F.I.T. before I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology I owned & operated my own small Fashion T-shirt business where I independently operated all marketing, manufacturing and creative endeavors. I have always attained a strong interest in shoe & handbag design. I have successfully completed coursework that have taught me to construct men’s and women’s shoes and handbags from concept pattern to end product. I also am highly skilled in utilizing CAD to render inspiration pages, line sheets, color renderings and technical sheets.

In August of 2010 to December 2010. I have acquired one internship at a small luxury accessories & apparel company by the name of Gustto. While interning at Gustto, I was responsible for computer rendering technical sheets and importing them into CAD programs like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Sitting in at presentations to buyers from Neiman Marcus was also quite the learning experience.

In August of 2012 to December 2012 I acquired a internship at a public relations firm named Company Agenda where I helped assist in the rebranding and marketing endeavors for clients who thrive in the fashion, art and restaraunt sector. Utilizing my background skills in design I also helped create some of their marketing & promotional materials. I one day hope to own my own fashion brand.
