I work in the fashion industry in NYC. I know there's not a lot of students coming from Pomona that are interested in that, but in case there are, I thought it would be good to offer to chat with them, since I couldn't find any alumni in this field when i was a student.

I've worked as a designer, a stylist and now I do color/concept and print for Kate Spade New York. I lead a team of amazing graphic designers and cad artists and work with our creative director to determine the concept of a season, the color palette, and the prints. Happy to speak with any interested students about this sort of creative work!
