My love and profession has been in the fashion industry for over 35 years. My experience titles included Designer/Pattern Maker/Design Room Supervisor/Sample Maker. I was the person that realized the steps to taking the designs from a sketch to the store, and everything in between, pattern making, fitting developing the samples and the final project. I've done a lot of freelance, wedding attires, men suits, customized men and ladies fashions, ice skating outfits, uniforms large and small quantities, patterns & pattern grading ( sized ), and much, much more. I worked the garment industries with several companies in Calif., N.Y. and Florida. I whole heartedly believe that I have been blessed with the ability to create in both the fashion and jewelry business.
The clothing that I was responsible for was sold to well known stores like JCPenneys, Mervyns, Marshals, HSN, Macys, and many more. Some years ago I did 44 Tampa Bay Bandits Cheerleaders, and a former Miss Florida contestant's dress that won 1rst place.
I also enjoy working with my jewelry and it seems more of a hobby although I sell it. I've been working on my jewelry since 2005. The majority of my work is in the seamstress capacity.
Feel free to contact me for any questions you may have.
Yours Truly, Marina
