I love fashion & my dogs! I grew up in New Jersey and always knew I would be a fashion designer

I started as a young child making clothes for my barbies out of paper. Then I took fashion classes and school and grew from there

Who is your inspiration in life Brianna? How do you keep inspired?

My grandpa is my inspiration. He was an incredible business man and generous soul

We all make mistakes Brianna; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Designer, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I am sensitive and affected by the mean, harsh people in the fashion industry. I wish I wouldn't let words of colleagues that are mean and negative upset me as much as they do 

Brianna , when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Designer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?

Proper communication - under promising & over delivering 

Please tell us, Brianna, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Designer?

When starting Moto near - I had to make sure everything from the logo to the fit of the clothing fit the message I was going for 

Brianna, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
Nobody liked the logo I chose at first - I went forward with it anyways, and the response to the logo has been a hit! I persuade people with trusting my gut, following it and having a successful outcome. 

Brianna, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Designer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Quoting my job and starting my own label! It was scary at first - still is. But I know I made the rite decision 

Brianna, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
When I do photo shoots, I usually shoot them myself - that way I can capture the clothing exactly how I want to. It's not always easy directing, styling and shooting the models but the outcome of the pictures is worth it

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Designer?

You can't just Create what you want to create, take your style and make it into something people need & want!
