Do you have any nicknames you go by?
My nickname is Jenni. However, a lot of my family and friends refer to me as Jenni from the block or Jenni from the movie Forrest Gump.
What got you into designing clothes?
I started sewing when I was 7. I always had a passion for the craft. As time flew by I made a decision to pursue this passion further and from there I decided to attend the Fashion Institute to learn more about design.
As a designer, what inspires you to dress yourself and what do you expect from your customers?
I like a lot of simplistic, minimalistic designs; a little pop of metallic, black, white and gray.
When customers buy my clothing, I look forward to their own styling. I love to see people express themselves with their own individual taste.
Other than designing and styling, what else are you in to?
I am really into cars and I have gotten into fitness a lot. I work on sketches on my free time. Sometimes I would even do knitting and crocheting. Art is a really big part of my life.
Do you have any specific goals for for this year?
I recently just graduated from FIDM in December and I am currently working on finishing up my first collection.
