When did you first fall in love with fashion and know that was the career for you?

Quandell: I fell in love with fashion when I was 8 years old and started sketching. My sketches were crazy looking lol but, having that freedom to create was everything to me. When I was 12, I taught myself how to hand sew and started creating patch pieces and since then I knew fashion was for me.
