Who’s That Girl?
While in art school, my first visit to New York was by way of a Greyhound Bus. The Manhattan skyline filled me with a wonderment that was unlike any MTV music video, old movie or book I had ever read during my youth that had led me there.
My unimpressive entry level position was relatively thankless in New York's Garment District. I was 21 years old and wouldn't trade that experience for anything! As a result, I have fondly called this city home since 1989.
Stepping back a bit...
I grew up a middle class kid in Texas. My parents, a retired aerial cartographer and an art museum docent, lead by example to each of their six children. They provided us with a house of my dad’s design, filled with creativity, independent thinking and seemingly endless encouragement.
Having a strong work ethic in combination with mentorship was taught to us at home and in school. The student council forged an admiration of community outreach with my artistic endeavors at a young age.
Fast forward to today.
I am a fashion designer by profession. This is something I have enjoyed my entire career, yet embrace many interests that always seem to keep me on my toes. (Literally. I am an avid runner!)
With no kids of my own and an appreciation for the betterment of us all, I take a special interest in causes that assist in change and/or sustainability. My hope is to someday have a charitable foundation.
Oh wait... I do! Check out marisoldelunafoundation.org. I like to believe my designs are more meaningful than a “Little Black Dress”.
