About CC&A Designs and Michelle

Michelle's STORY


Before receiving my Design degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, I was hired as the Assistant Designer in an upscale NYC ladies loungewear firm. That was the beginning of my design career.  I continued designing in NYC for a variety of sportswear firms until my first child was born. I was then able to mix business with the pleasure of raising my daughter and son.  Through CC&A Designs I have taught design/art to children, teens, & adults, as well as continuing with designing clothing and other things for Long Island and NYC companies and theaters. 


 During this time I also became a Kitchen/Bath Interior Designer for various companies, such as: IKEA and The Home Depot. Still designing interiors with cabinetry, I now live in New Hampshire where I've enjoyed creating beautiful & efficient homes, and my Unique items are found in local stores, fairs, and at the Dover Art Walk.  I hope my web site will inspire and motivate you to contact me so we might work together.
