Cotrina - Fashion Designer - Miami, Florida, USA

Leidy Cotrina

Miami, Florida, USA

Summary

My name is Leidy Cotrina I graduated from Miami International University of Art & Designwith a bachelor degree in Fashion Design.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have hands-on experience that has provided me with many skills such as fashion design illustrations, technical flats (by hand or computer), pattern-making and draping, machine and hand sewing, couture techniques, grading, and techpack. I also have experience with Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Gerber/Accumark, and Microsoft suites. Furthermore, though an unrelated skill, I speak fluent English and Spanish.

I’ve interned with Julian Chang, started a small freelance design business in Men’s wear, created uniforms for AT&T, and drawn many professional illustrations. I also currently teach youths (ages 6-15) fashion design, pattern-making, construction, textile, hand sewing, and help them to develop concepts.
