Allyson is a full-time apparel designer and casual weaver living in the heart of North Carolina's Piedmont Triad. She received her BFA in Studio Art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she focused on Fashion Design, Fiber/Material Studies and Visual/Critical Studies, and her AA in Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, CA. She currently designs for adidas kids and has worked with various apparel and textile companies in the South Eastern United States and in Bangkok, Thailand. She is attuned to digital and automated processes of design and manufacturing (but still finds handmade the most romantic) and her work is a cumulative response to all three.
