About me

IMG_5925
My name is Chyna Perez and it is pronounced like the country China but instead of an “i”, I spell it with a “y”.

I am a menswear designer and graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Before FIDM, I attended a community college named Citrus College where I was a business technology major and graduated with three AA degrees in 2 years. I then went FIDM in downtown LA and got a professional designation degree in Apparel Industry Management, then continued to get an advanced AA degree in menswear fashion which also led to my BA in menswear fashion. In a matter of 4 years I have received 6 degrees.

This alone backs me when I say I am passionate, driven, and motivated. When I want something I don't stop till I achieve it. I would describe myself as a creative mind that produces agile solutions even under high pressure. I am not afraid of diving into new opportunities because what comes today may not come tomorrow. I am willing to go wherever the job takes me!

I am ambitious, adventurous, fearless, and daring.
