Meet Monica Ditsworth, AAS Fashion Design '10
"During my time in the AAS Fashion Design program, a breakthrough moment happened for my career when my portfolio was accepted for the design show preview. In my submission meeting, I was told that my fashion designs weren't as strong as my illustrations. At the time I was heartbroken, but this turned out to be the most influential piece of advice for my handmade greeting card business, Ratbone Skinny, which exists because of this skill I continued to nurture after that meeting."
