We’ve all been there – struggling to figure out what in the world to include in your tech pack portfolio, what NOT to include, what’s relevant and irrelevant… That’s why Christina and I work through exactly what her goals are and how to create the optimal portfolio to attract the right brands while doing the work that Christina loves!
You’ll also hear about Christina’s struggles figuring out what aesthetic to pursue, since she was told she wouldn’t find work in the industry that she loves. Listen in on why I think this could actually be a really amazing opportunity for Christina to find clients and brands while not compromising on the work she’s passionate about.
Christina is a women’s wear designer born and raised in Westchester County, New York. Most of her experience is freelancing in women’s active wear although she has also experienced working full time in the corporate fashion world (prior to COVID). Her biggest passion is sewing and her work has been featured in various publications and even won a competition. Some of the brands she has worked for in her time include Dragon Crowd for Costco, Champion for Authentic Lifestyle Products, and Macy’s for International Direct Group (IDG). Outside of design she has played bagpipes for about 20 years now marching in parades and playing gigs throughout New York.
