This past October I had the opportunity to present at Fashionspeak 2014. My boss at Lear Corporation and I conducted a 70 minute workshop in front of an audience of over 200 people. We talked about what we do as automotive fabric designers, and how fashion influences our work. I never imagined that my education in fashion design would lead to a career in the automotive industry. We hoped to show the audience, especially the students, that design skills can be transferable, and inspire them to possibly try something out of their comfort zone.
