How IADT helped:
Mariella Amador: I’m happy that I got a bachelor’s degree in fashion design from IADT Detroit, because I used to create garments without proper training. I can personally see a huge difference in my life since joining. IADT gave me more understanding on a wide range of fashion principles, various methods of designing, and how to evolve in my own pure vision.
How Detroit Inspires:
Mariella Amador: Detroit is full of creative people, any creativity and passion is always inspiring to me.
My advice to aspiring fashion designers:
Mariella Amador: Stay focused on what you believe your designs should look like, and just be yourself.
