Yesenia Hernandez
DESIGNER BIO/ BACKGROUND 
I think that playing dress-up begins at age and never truly ends. Some days 
I would run around in my pink glitter tutu and tiara pretending I was the princess of the
house. Other days I would dress up as a teacher with my mini heels and glasses. As I got
older I would watch my mom do her hair and makeup and my favorite part was watching 
her pick out her outfit. I fell in love with that silky, elegant, pink floral dress. I would tell
myself “One day I’ll dress up just like mommy” I loved going shopping with her, it was our 
bonding time. I loved all the pink dresses, handbags, scarfs, and shoes! I guess I blame my
mom for my pink addiction but its ok everyone looks pretty in pink! Right! However fashion wasn’t 
the first thing that came in mind when I was looking for a career. I knew that I loved drawing 
and wanted to go into the art field but it wasn’t until I was organizing my quinceañera, that 
year that I knew that I wanted to go into the fashion industry. I loved how the lady sketched
out my quinceanera dress and made it come to life.
Sometimes, I think fashion was my destiny. 
Later that year, I ended up moving to Riverside and in my new school they actually offered
sewing classes which I ended up taking and I loved so much! After high school I started taking 
fashion classes at Santa Ana College. It felt good going back to the OC area and seeing all
my old friends again. I had so much fun working with local businesses and hearing their stories.
For a while I was interested in children's wear but later this semester I started taking some couture 
sewing classes and I loved creating these beautiful gowns! I really don’t know what area I 
want to design for at the moment because I love doing both children wear and 
young contemporary but I’ve always know that I want to start my own clothing brand and 
I’m really excited to see what else my future has in store for me!
