Introducing Dyana Hesson Fashion
While attending college in southern California I worked retail; mostly for Nordstrom’s in the accessory department. Our department carried hats, gloves, belts, sunglasses and scarves. Our buyers would come in occasionally and educate us about upcoming trends and styles. I remember our scarf buyer mentioning how nothing in our cases was produced in the United States because the cost would be prohibitive. I taught scarf tying workshops to young business women at local events and began my own scarf collection with a beautiful Italian floral design.
For several years now I have wondered what my designs would look like on fabric. I began to dream about fusing my love of art and fashion. And, with the advent of new technologies, it became possible to create some fabric designs of my own. I decided to start with a scarf design because of my history and love of this simple yet elegant fashion accessory.
