PYT

Welcome! I am a seasoned fashion design executive with a strong background in wholesale/retail and private label sectors. With extensive experience and dynamic leadership, I offer a unique blend of creativity and business acumen to drive successful projects while maintaining brand integrity.

As a skilled fashion illustrator, hand sketcher, and CAD artist, I have a keen eye for style and color. I excel in color and textile development, as well as creating and licensing prints/graphics. In 2015, I earned the prestigious title of the NY Fashion Week print design winner.

Throughout my career, I have played a pivotal role in conceptualizing, developing, and executing complete collections for renowned labels such as DKNY, Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis, and Victoria Royal. My commitment to delivering outstanding results has led to positive sales growth and garnered industry recognition.

I hold a bachelor’s degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology, where I was selected as one of only fifty candidates to participate in the prestigious four-year Fashion Design program. During my studies, I specialized in design room techniques (couture), tailoring, sweaters, knits, and woven sportswear. Additionally, I had the invaluable opportunity to study one semester at ESMOD France and was honored with the Oscar de la Renta Award – Americas Dress Address.

As an artist, I am constantly sketching and carry a sketchbook wherever I go. My work has been exclusively featured at major retailers such as David’s Bridal, Papyrus, and Walmart
