My name is Emma Brawner, and I was raised in the Lone Star State of Texas. Although this state holds a special place in my heart, my dream does not lie among its vast cattle ranges and dry riverbanks. It lies in a place overflowing with color swatches, fabric bolts, beautiful dresses, and shoes of all sorts. In other words, I yearn to be wherever the heartbeat of fashion can be found. At a young age, I developed a passion for the apparel industry, reading fashion magazines at breakfast and planning outfits before bed. This love for the industry led me to become an Apparel Design and Product Development major at Baylor University. I plan to graduate in 2019 and pursue every opportunity that fulfills my lifelong dream of charting my course in the apparel industry.
