MEET THE GIRL BEHIND THE BLOG:

     During the summer of 2010, I interned for a design company in New York City. I had just returned from the most amazing three month trip to Italy where I studied fashion and European culture.  My time spent abroad played a major role in shaping me into who I am today. I would give anything to do it all over again, and I plan on it. When I returned home to Atlanta from my internship, I realized Europe and New York City (while very far away from each other) had one thing in common, they made me hungry for more. Since Italy was not a very realistic option, I knew NYC was where I needed to be.

     In December 2010, I got a call from a good friend (who at the time I barely knew) saying they had an open bedroom and if I wanted it I had to jump on it. Seconds later, I hung up the phone, ran downstairs and said "Mom and Dad, I'm moving to New York" Two weeks later I moved into my first apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

     During my first year in the big apple, I worked as a Visual Merchandiser for Brandy Melville. In September of 2011, I started working as an Assistant Denim Designer for Almost Famous where I spent 3 prosperous years not only growing as a designer, but learning about myself and just who I wanted to become! With the new year of 2015 approaching,  I decided it was time to for the next step. I accepted a job as an Associate Designer for Mamiye Brothers where I continued to expand my denim knowledge.  In 2016 I decided to put my fashion design career on hold and pursue Social Media & Marketing in Atlanta. I do miss NYC dearly and visit quite often, but for now I am seeing what Atlanta has to offer while having more free time to grow my blog! 

     It was during the summer of 2014 that I started blogging.  I love watching Freedom of Wardrobe grow and feel honored to have the recognition it has received thus far!  Sharing my style with the world and inspiring others with their's gives me such a great deal of satisfaction. Fashion, Art & Culture have always been a huge part of my life and I don't think I would have it any other way.  Thank you for following me on this journey!
