Fashion Portfolio Academy
Fashion Portfolio Academy director Francisca Pineda has been working her dream job for more than ten years, but she didn’t start out there. She cut her teeth with hands-on work, breaking into the industry as a sewer and fitter for a studio that worked with dance and theater companies. Her career behind the drawing board began after a successful stint at Parsons, where she studied the habits of formidable designers including Marc Jacobs and Isaac Mizrahi. It took several years of diligently climbing the hand-woven ladder of New York fashion before she found an outlet as the co-founder of the luxury women’s brand Bhava. With these professional experiences to back up her lessons, Francisca now helps this generation's aspiring designers break through—as long as they’re also willing to work their way up.
