I was born in beautiful, sunny San Diego, Ca in 1991. I have 3 siblings and a large extended family. Living the California lifestyle and spending time with my family were crucial elements in my upbringing.
My passion for fashion started at a very young age. I learned to sew on my grandmother’s sewing machine when I was just seven years old! Since then, I've continued to evolve my talents and take on new challenges.I went on to attend Fashion Careers College where I received an AA in Fashion Design and Technology. My senior collection at Fashion Careers College was highlighted in the annual Golden Hanger Fashion Awards. I also showed my collection at New York’s Full Figured Fashion Week in 2012.
Balodana is thrilled to announce an exclusive custom, made-to-measure couture collection by fashion designer and Project Runway® winner Ashley Nell Tipton! She will be accepting limited orders for the new collection. The Ashley Nell Tipton line for Balodana will include high-end, premium quality couture inspired by her final season on Project Runway®.
