NINA MEANS

Although unconventional paths led me to fashion, I have always created and sewed garments throughout my life.  I believe in being a constant student of my craft, and growing among others who share my love of design.  

 

Backed with an International Fashion Degree from FIT in New York, I have built a strong foundation in construction and design details.  During my year study in Italy, I walked away with a new language, deep appreciation for pioneering design, and a high respect for innovation at the craftsmanship level.
