CYO Interview

Reesie


1. When did you first start designing CYO?
I started designing CYO around a couple months after I joined DC.

2. What made you start designing CYO?
I started designing CYO because I saw so many amazing designers, and I wanted to be able to create such beautiful designs like them. I also have always had an eye for fashion and designing, so I couldn’t help my self when I saw you could do that on here.

3. What is your favorite CYO piece that you have created?
My favorite CYO piece I’ve created would have to be this dress I made for Jenna(jennamazingg). It was a challenge for me and I liked the way it turned out.

4. What your biggest CYO accomplishment so far?
My biggest CYO accomplishment so far would definitely be being on the Design Team. When I first started designing CYO, I never thought I would be able to qualify for a spot on the team. I feel so lucky, because they are such amazing people.

5. What is the best thing about designing CYO?
The best thing about designing CYO would have to be seeing people actually liking my work and wearing it. Most of what I design nowadays is for the mall/boutiques or bundles, so it is definitely amazing to see my stuff around DC.

6. How long does it take you to create a CYO piece?
If I am just designing once piece like a dress/gown, it usually takes me up to an hour. If I am creating a whole outfit, I am usually designing for two hours or more.

7. Who is your favorite CYO designer?
There are so many amazing designers here on DC including the wonderful design team, but Ami(Zumzy) and Nicole(focus) are the two people who continually amaze me with their talent.

8. What’s one tip you can offer to new CYO designers?
One tip I can offer to new CYO designers is to never give up! I started out knowing absolutely nothing about designing or the types of computer programs for it. I ended up teaching myself everything to where I am today. It is important to ask for C&C on your creations, because you can only get better!
