My name is Miranda Hanson . I am 19 years old and I am starting my third semester at The Fashion Institute of Technology in the Fall, majoring in Fashion Design. I learned how to sew at the age of eight when my grandmother taught me and gifted me my first sewing machine. When I was around the age of 12, I started to really enjoy fashion and make pieces of my own. These past few years I have spent hours in my studio putting in time to make clothing for myself and others. I showed my first collection when I was 15 and my career has only grown since then. I have four collections I created throughout high school and more to come. Creating custom special occasion wear has also found a place in my heart. Dozens of Prom and Homecoming dresses each year has taught me how to work well with a client and mash our ideas to make a perfect look on their special day. Throughout my first year of college I became skilled in Photoshop, Illustrator, draping, sewing, and drawing. I look forward to learning more and more to master my craft as well as grow my brand.
