Designer Interview with Sanzo Designs
Collection Name: Sanzo Designs
Upcoming Showcase: NYFW 9/6/2016
Growing up, was there anyone in your family who made you feel like designing?
Yes, my mother encouraged me. I was always the tallest person in all of my classes and learned at a very early age to sew.
What things outside of fashion, inspire your clothing?
Art, music, color, architecture, anything inspires me.
How different is conception preparation in relation to F/W vs S/S garments?
Of course the F/W and S/S are incredibly different.
What markets and demographic do you cater to?
I cater mainly to women 25 plus, however, that is increasing, younger than 25 are interested.
What was it like seeing your clothing on the runway the first time?
I enjoyed seeing my designs on the runway. I tried to be critical and decide what changes needed to be made.
So if you had the choice of all fashion designers in the world to work with, who would that person be?
I would definitely work for Emillio Pucci or Versace. They are fashion forward and I love bright, bold colors.
What advice would you give to aspiring fashion designers?
My advise is, Network, Network, Network, and don't be afraid to learn from someone younger or older. We all have significant things to offer.
