SNAP! By Mollym
1. When did you first start designing CYO?
I started CYO shortly after I joined DC in 2011. I was not very good at it lol.
2. What made you start designing CYO?
I was intrigued by creating clothes for the dolls to wear. I had played around with doing it but never actually tried to learn anything at first. I quickly became addicted to learning new things.
3. What is your favorite CYO piece that you have created?
I entered Divamour one season and every piece from that season I was proud of. DM pushes you to create the best and I was thrilled with my own results!!
4. What your biggest CYO accomplishment so far?
Everything I’ve learned!! When I look at my early creations and compare them with the things I’ve created recently, it’s hard for me to believe how much I’ve learned and grown!
5. What is the best thing about designing CYO?
The creativity of course!!! Being able to create something from nothing is VERY appealing and fun!
6. How long does it take you to create a CYO piece?
Wellll, I’m quite slow actually. I am such a perfectionist when it comes to CYO that I go over everything many times and a lot of time, my design changes in the middle. Other times, I can get something going very quickly, just depends on how much time I have and what I’m creating. It can take anywhere from a couple hours to days and days lol.
7. Who is your favorite CYO designer?
There are many, but Auntypat’s design style is so clean and effortless. I just love everything she creates!!
8. What’s one tip you can offer to new CYO designers?
DO NOT BE AFRAID TO TRY NEW THINGS!!!! I think designers get scared to go out of their comfort zones. Some of my best stuff came about by playing around in my design program. There is so much creative potential when designing fashion and I think it’s easy to think outside the box on every level! You never know what you can do until you try
