In 1999, the spark to become a fashion designer ignited as my mother and I watched the Essence Awards. Witnessing two young urban designers receive the Designer of the Year award filled the room with excitement. In that moment, I felt a deep calling to nurture my artistic abilities and embark on a journey in fashion design.
Taking the first step, I enrolled in Brooks College in Long Beach, California, in 1999, earning an Associate of Arts in Fashion Design. Building on this foundation, I secured a coveted spot in the Apparel Design program at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design in Providence. Armed with newfound skills, I returned to my hometown, driven by a vision to make a significant impact on the fashion industry.
Identifying a gap in the market, I founded Alchemy1965 with a mission to seamlessly blend Ready-to-Wear, Urban Wear, and Art. Our brand is dedicated to delivering patterns and designs that seamlessly combine trendiness with art and timeless quality. Infusing street fashion trends with our distinct urban style, Alchemy1965 aspires to carve its place as a globally recognized lifestyle brand.
