PJN Photography SKETCH Design Lounge 9


Rhianna is a fashion designer with industry experience. She opened Sketch Design Lounge, LLC in 2013, to share her love of fashion design and art with all ages.

A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, with a BA in Apparel Design, she started her career with internships at Maja, Habitual, a high end denim company.

Her first assistant design position, based in NYC, was at Liz Claiborne Inc was in a fast paced division called Lizqwik. This focused on infusing missed trends into the existing fashion line.

This job included all the best that a fashion career has to offer including finding inspiration, creating specs packages, fitting garments on a model, setting up the showroom, meeting with vendors, sourcing fabric and trims, and of course, creating a product to be sold in stores!

In 2006 she became Designer of Hats, Scarves & Gloves at Mexx (a modern European brand).

Rhianna says “I have always been in love with fashion. Around age 6 I wore a yellow evening gown all over town & insisted on wearing it to school. (Thanks Mom & Dad!) I think fashion is a great way to express yourself and to have fun! That being said, I often find myself wearing black, because I love it! I have two “little fashionistas” of my own.”
