|What people or experiences have taught you the most and helped you to arrive where you are?
My primary inspiration came from Mel Odom, Billy Boy and Andy Warhol.
Again having the Opportunity to have my first start in the business with such a well known Fashion Stylist.
just about anyone I've met or meet to this day. Photographers, clients, assistants, eating out, reading books, traveling and cooking. Keep your eyes and mind, absorb, ask, investigate, stay curious that's what makes all of us exhale in our trades and skills
Some people observe their life others a blind sided by it. I have been taught by my entire life.
My father has inspired me a lot to become self-motivated and driven. He has always been a great listener and teacher. My mother has helped me in many different ways and has always been there for me. My family and friends are a big part of who I am today. I have learned from many different experiences in life and don't regret any of them, they have taught me all so much.
I really can't peg 1 person or event. I try to take something away from every experience I have, both good and bad, its the only way to grow & learn. If I see someone wearing something or see a page in a magazine that I don't agree with the styling, I try to at least figure out what could be done to make it better. I also have 2 boards that I keep in my office, 1 has my "best" work on it, the other has other stylists work that I find inspirational on it. I also look at my work and compare it to theirs to see what I could have done better. I think because I know that I can grow & try to further develop my craft daily, that is where I am today.
My parents are helping me the most. They send me to Accademy of Fashion in Italy, and after that supported me in my wishes to realize the best way my carrier.
Traveling and working abroad with different designers in countries like Paris, Switzerland, and London has been an incredible experience to learn how other countries and cultures embrace fashion.
My parents wanted me to be a lawyer or a doctor. Although my mom didn't believe in a fashion career, she believed in me after my first year in college. Her support and the wonderful mentors from Philadelphia University brought out my talent even more. Now, any advice; fashion, interior design or color, my mom takes my advice.
My mom's knowledge of fabrics, my dad's ambition and patience from bad experience, so you come out stronger.
Hard work and trial and error
My past employers have taught me most of what I know, as mentors I took every lesson they passed down to me with me through out my entire fashion career, along with them taking me under there wing. The experiences that shaped my future were at trade shows where I can maintain my vendor/fashion contacts and establish new industry relationships.

Well, a photographer who I met and still work with haas been a major influence to me. She was hard to work with at first, but her eye for detail really helped me to hone my skills.
Also, my father who is no longer here, always help to encourage my dreams.
