Textiles and Apparel Merchandising Student
Austin, TX, USA
I am a junior at the University of Texas at Austin studying Textiles and Apparel Merchandising with a certificate (24 hours) of Business from McCombs School of Business. I am extremely passionate about all aspects of the textile and apparel career field from design, to visual merchandising, to product development, and have taken courses that have given me real world experience in all of these fields and many more as well.
In my classes I have done everything from studying and identifying textiles, to designing, patterning, and creating my own clothing. I have communicated with clients one-on-one in a retail setting handling high volumes of customers at once, created a store layout and marketing plan for both existing companies and companies that I have created and I have also created print advertisements and blogs promoting certain brand images.
I enjoy learning everything that I can about my career field and do not plan to stop learning anytime soon. I enjoy the fast-paced and exciting lifestyle that this field brings and would love to be able to bring my own energy and ideas into it someday soon. Upon graduating I hope to work in the Merchandising/Buying field or Product Development field.
