This page is for a recently re-discovered journey I only recently picked up, Fashion Design Art.  It includes some sketches, recent fashion designs, and sewing projects!   I learned to draw fashion illustrations when I was a teenager.   My mother bought me art supplies and I began drawing fashion illustrations. She took me to sewing classes at Sears Department store also as a teen. I made my first outfit a teal color knee-high jacket with a white silk lining. I remember it all so well. I was about 15. I wanted to be a fashion designer. I did learn to sew when I was about 15 years old but never designed an outfit.

 Spending more time at home during covid in 2021,  I returned to my childhood dream of over 50 years of fashion illustration and fashion design along with introducing his daughter to it.  In 2021, I returned to sewing and designed my very first outfit 2022.  

In the fall of 2022, I attended Columbus Fashion Week and debuted my first fashion design. A fashion design college student interviewing VIP guests said she loved my outfit and asked me who I was wearing. I was proud to say me! I look forward to this creative journey!
