Tell me about you: where are you from, how old are you?
I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN MIAMI,FL BUT I NOW LIVE IN NYC. I'M 24 YEARS OLD
What do you do?
MENSWEAR AND WOMEN'S WEAR DESIGNER (AS WELL AS MANY OTHER THINGS)
When did you know that Fashion was something you were passionate about?
MAJORING IN FASHION MARKETING & DESIGN JUST WASN'T ENOUGH UNTIL I SPENT MY ENTIRE SENIOR YEAR IN LONDON. IT WAS THEN THAT I REALIZED WHAT I WANTED THE REST OF MY LIFE TO LOOK AND FEEL LIKE. BEING THERE PLAYED AN INCREDIBLE PART IN WHERE I AM TODAY AS FAR AS CHOOSING A WORK AESTHETIC, STICKING TO IT, AND BUILDING A CAREER AROUND IT
What has been your biggest accomplishment to date?
I WOULD HAVE TO SAY STARTING A BRAND (www.SergioJames.com) WITH JAMES FIELD HAS TRULY BEEN A GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT. WE SEE THIS AS A LIFESTYLE AND NOT A COMPANY THAT WILL BRING US MONEY. OUR HEARTS ARE TRULY IN THIS BUSINESS TO SHOW THE PUBLIC WHAT WE'RE CAPABLE OF.
What advice do you have for others aspiring to do what you do?
QUITTING IS ABSOLUTELY NOT AN OPTION. IF YOU'RE TRULY DESIROUS ABOUT YOUR FUTURE. HAVE A VISION, A SOLID SUPPORT SYSTEM, AND YOU'LL BE SURPRISED AT HOW FAR YOUR DREAMS WILL TAKE YOU.
Life quote: If there was one quote that summed up your view on life what would it be?
"IF A HUMAN DARES TO BE BIGGER THAN THE CONDITION IN WHICH HE OR SHE WAS BORN, THEN SO CAN YOU" - MAYA ANGELOU
