We are getting closer and closer to our birthday bash! In fact it is a week from this Friday! WHOO HOO! So since we are almost there we are continuing with the features on the butt kicking team here at Whorl. Today let us talk about our awesome in house designer Sydni. An Extremly important part of imprints, as in she is one of the designers to create the line, her talents and general amazing attitude have made Imprints a very large part of everything we do at Whorl. Coming from Colorado Springs Sydni earned her degree in design from Colorado State, where she met our ever fearless leader Megan. We are so grateful for everything that Sydni brings to the table and we could not be more happy to have her.
When did you start at whorl?I started working at Whorl designing for the Imprints line in February of 2016.
What is your “official” title? I am the In House Designer for Whorl. I design the private label that is sold at Whorl. We come out with a new collection every spring and fall.
Who is your favorite Designer? My favorite designer is Vera Wang. I interned in New York at Vera Wang for three months and it was so inspiring.
Why and how did you get into fashion? I became interested in fashion at an early age. When I was in elementary school, I remember watching a show on Disney Channel called That’s So Raven, and the main character designed and made some of her clothes and as her character grew so did her passion for designing clothes. The show sparked my interest and then I decided to design and make my prom dresses and my mom’s wedding vow-renewal dress, and that was that….I was hooked. I went to CSU for a bachelor’s degree in apparel design and production and a minor in business.
What do you like about the Colorado scene? I like how small the fashion scene is in Colorado and how close knit everyone is. Everyone is so supportive and it is a wonderful community.
What is your favorite part about working at whorl? I love the people that I get to work with! They always make me laugh and I feel like I am apart of a family here.
What do you hope to see in the next year at whorl?
