Hi Tarsha! First tell us a little bit about yourself? Hi there!  I am a upcoming designer in Houston. I never know how to answer that question

How long have you been a designer? I’ve been actively designing clothes for about 5 years.

What inspired you to start making clothes? I was inspired by need lol. I was a really skinny kid with long arms and legs, nothing ever fit. I use to imagine having clothes made for my body. When I got older I figured I’ll start making clothes that fit 

Where does the name of your clothing line, Delmonicole, come from? Delmonicole is my middle name.  Growing up I absolutely hated it but when it came time to pick a name for my line it seemed like the best option. Unique and different


Your tagline on Facebook says your line is “Not the average clothing line” – tell us how it differs from other collections? My line has a modern vintage feel. In my opinion a lot of clothing lines are trendy. Delmonicole customers will be able to wear my pieces for years. I create timeless pieces that all ages can have fun with.
 
Where can people browse and buy your products?  You can browse my Facebook fan page or my website at www.delmonicole.com or www.facebook.com/delmonicoleclothing
 
What are your size offering in your line? As of now my sizing is XS-L

I love your zigzag dress from your Fall Collection! What was the specific inspiration you used for that piece? I was at a little league game sitting under a tree and the leaves kept falling on me. There was one that stood out, I loved the color pattern and it had this zig zag shape I thought was interesting. I thought, wouldn’t this make a cool skirt or dress.
What can we expect from your Spring Collection? Bright color and bold patterns! My line up to this point has consisted of mainly tops and dresses, this collection I will be adding bottoms! I’m really excited to see the outcome

Do you do custom orders? I can definitely do custom orders. Just send inquiries to info@delmonicole.com

It looks like you enjoy playing with different shapes and patterns, what are some of your favorite prints to work with? I love any print that stands out! I also love textures as well. Anything that has visual appeal.

Which season of Fashion do you enjoy the most? Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter? Spring/Summer is definitely my strongest and most enjoyable season. I love bright colors and light fabrics. I’m definitely a Houstonian
Are you a native of Houston? How do you like it here? I was born in NY but lived in Houston most my life. I was an army brat but Houston is my home. 

What’s your opinion on the fashion scene here in Houston? It’s growing, Houston has some amazing designers. I definitely feel like we have a ways to go in order to be recognized 

Do you have any upcoming showcases or runway shows to tell us about? I plan on showcasing my SS collection in March. I haven’t set a date or venue yet

How much influence does your own personal style have over the clothes you make? I design clothes that I want to wear. I feel that I have just simply opened up my closet to the world. My line is all me
