Making women feel beautiful since 2015.
Dylan Skinner Designs was founded by Dylan Skinner when she was only 16 years old.
Dylan has been designing ever since she was in elementary school and has grown to aspire to share her artistic vision, through her designs, with others. As Dylan progressed and discovered her passion, she became increasingly enamored with dress design. Although Dylan designs other clothing items such as tops, skirts, accessories, etc., dress design captures her interest in endless ways.
Dylan interned for up-and-coming designer, Abbey Glass (www.abbey-glass.com), in Atlanta, GA, over the summer of 2014 and grew even further from her experience there.
Dylan Skinner attended Parsons Pre-College Academy In New York City, NY for four years, and completed the program in the Spring, 2015.
She then created this website, and plans on continuing to run this business with the help of some entrepreneurial-spirited confidants, in order to be able to share her vision with anyone interested in new fashion trends, while we offer the pieces to sustain said trends. Dylan has continued her industry experience through internships (following Abbey Glass) with PVH Corp., ZAC Zac Posen, and Tommy Hilfiger with many other smaller positions along the way.
Dylan now attends Marist College, majoring in Fashion Merchandising, as part of the Class of 2020.
