I’ve always been a creative personality but hadn’t considered Fashion Design as a career path until very recently. In my teenage years I would hand-sew pants to fit my waist or convert bellbottom pants to skinny jeans. I don’t have any formal training in design and most of my talent for design is natural – definitely one of my gifts. After graduating Barry University with a Bsc in Psychology, I had an ‘aha’ moment!- I will pursue fashion! (my very patient parents have been a tremendous support through the development of NATIVE) In 2013 I hand-sewed my first few pieces, was gifted a sewing machine by my parents in 2015 and have had YouTube and books as my most concentrated learning tools along the way. In 2018 I participated in my first fashion show, launched my resort wear brand “NATIVE by ChanningElizabeth” and have been creating ever since.
