Hello !
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to preview my portfolio.
I'm an accomplished apparel designer professional with over fifteen years in the fashion industry, also a former fashion blogger, a part of my life I enjoyed very much.
While working at the center of the garment district in New York city I have learned and acquired so many skills and new techniques to improve my designing career, it has been rewarding and challenging at the same time. I have also worked with so many great companies where I had the pleasure of meeting great people Throughout the years. There's nothing boring about being part of the fashion world, yet like any other job it comes with it's ups and downs even so with passing time and years I have learned that it's all about what we choose to make of our day, our lives, every single day we can choose to move forward or let life challenges get in the way.
Here you can take a look at some of my past work and get an idea of my many skills and work related experience.
thank you again for stopping by!

Sincerely,
Leidy Spahn
