My name is Joselin Fabian,  My friends and damily always call me "Jossy" I was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to New York to live with my father at age 12.

Prior to moving to New York I had a happy childhood in the costal town of Puerto Plata. I lived with my 3 brothers and my mother. My mother engendered in me a passion for hand crafted clothes and accessories.
As a means to support her four children, my mother sold clothing from a small store in our neighborhood.  It was exciting to see her financially benefit from the sale of clothing that she would hand make-either from patterns or her own designs. I grew up without any money to buy clothes, but I always found my way to put different fabrics and pieces together. 

When I was 11 years old, I created my own costume with vintage fabrics that i found at my grandmother's house for the carnaval season that year. I studied  Fashion Merchandising At the Fashion Institute of Technology for three years and I also have a business management degree.
