Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Maricella , and I moved here from Santa Cruz in 2009.
Right after high school in 2007 I went off to UCSC for two years
until I realized that Fashion design was my true calling and since
then I have had an incredible time here in the city. I just
recently graduated from F.I.D.M in December 2011, had my first ever
debut fashion show in May, and had another one October 11th at
I'm 23 years old.
I am a student. I currently attend AAU for fashion design to obtain
my B.F.A in fashion design.
I work. I'm an optician at an awesome optical shop in the Marina
and have been in the eye wear industry for a few years now.
Other then the fashion and eye wear life, I do like to hang out
with friends. I attend a lot of fashion events solely for
networking and usually I find myself making a lot more contacts
My favorite designer is Alexander McQueen, I watch Gossip Girl
religiously , I'm an avant-garde and surrealism enthusiast, I love
cats, Twilight is my guilty pleasure, and lastly I love to thrift
when I can.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Fashion design. I love, live, want and crave it. The big dream is
to be in Milan in the next ten years working for a design house,
and then work my way up to have my own line. One step at a time,
everything else is in the works.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sewing. I recently just had another fashion show a few weeks ago
and it was a huge success. I don't draw very well, but I love to
sew and I enjoy doing it. I also find pattern drafting very
enjoyable. as well.

Style. I dress to impress and I have a style of my own. You'll
usually see dark hair, fierce eyebrows, and tons of eyeliner. Did I
mention that I love wearing black on black with black everything? I
do have some color in my line of clothes but I love black and I
keep it chic.
