Mandy Caruso


I am a senior at Parsons School of Design in NYC, with a major in fashion design. My ultimate career goal is to combine my love for film and storytelling through fashion by becoming a costume designer for film. Colleen Atwood, who designs costumes for most of Tim Burton's films, is my biggest inspiration in the field.

I have worked in retail and as an assistant designer at the ready-to-wear line Kymerah. My commission work for private clients includes dresses, illustrations, tattoo design, and fashion photography styling.
