I grew up in central Minnesota the 6th of 9 children. I’ve been sewing since I was 4 and made my first dress at 9. Since then, I’ve enjoyed making clothes for myself and others. I decided to go to college for sewing and fashion design after high-school and started looking at fashion schools. I found MCTC’s Apparel program in the spring of my senior year. I’ll be graduating from MCTC this May and have plans to open my own custom dress design shop.
My designs have inspiration from flower gardens and sunsets. My line ‘Sunsets in Paradise’ was inspired by the sunsets at my parents farm and also the “Munsinger gardens” in ST. Cloud, MN. I’ve chosen to keep my designs modest and simple but at the same time, beautiful.
