About my work at Parsons:

My foundation year at Parsons has taught me a lot about the design process and development. I have been able to learn new techniques and experiment with various media and art forms. The projects assigned to me have allowed me to step outside of my comfort zone and expand my capabilities and breadth. The challenges I have faced have allowed me to strengthen my artistic, communication, and time management skills.

About me:

My name is Zachary Fernandez and I am currently a First-year Parsons student with a major in Fashion Design. I have shown an interest in fashion design since I was as young as five years old. I started sewing and creating pieces at the age of seven. It was during that time where I fell in love with construction and creating garments. 

I later attended Oakland School for the Arts where I was able to further my knowledge of design and construction. 

In the past, I have been able to work in the fashion industry on many different levels. I started working in the fashion industry at the age of fifteen when I was a finalist on Lifetime’s first season of “Project Runway Junior”. There,  I was able to showcase my work on a large scale and learn a lot about the demands of the industry. The following summer, I sought out an internship with Marchesa and was able to learn about being a working professional within the fashion world. While working there, I was living independently in New York and was able to explore and take advantage of the various opportunities the city provided.  From there, I was able to intern at various New York Fashion Week Shows as both a design and production intern. I have been able to transfer the lessons I learned from both Project Runway and Marchesa into my daily life as I attempt to also start my own label.
