“Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.”Vivienne Westwood
Hello, my name is Emily Deleon. I am currently studying at the State University of New York, College at Oneonta, obtaining a degree in Fashion & Textiles with a concentration in Fashion Business Management.
My inspiration behind getting involved in fashion is my love for graphic t-shirts. Over the years, I have collected a vast amount of graphic t-shirts. It is my desire and passion to design and develop my own graphic tees and clothing designs.
Within my educational career at Oneonta, I have taken a number of classes that not only pertain to Fashion Business but journalism and computer-integrated fashion using Abode Illustrator. The utilization of these classes has helped me have a better understanding and enhancing my skills within technology and have sharpened my area of expertise.
In an industry that is vastly changing, due to the COVID outbreak, it will allow me to stand out in this generation of up and coming fashion careers is that we survived and thrived through a pandemic and represent hope to a future generation.
I am looking forward with excitement to start my career within the fashion world. So I can apply my education and skills within the fashion industry. In my portfolio, you will find my Fashion Journalism portfolio with articles I have written.
