Angela, affectionately known as ‘asum’ by friends and family, has always known that she was visually creative and wanted to be a designer since she was in grade school. It wasn’t until she was 20 that she decided to pursue her dream taking night classes at FIT and later on enrolling there for a full time, accelerated fashion design associates degree. Angela’s design aesthetic is influenced by anime and romance, in everything from images to music. In her free time, she loves to hang out with her husband or catch a movie.

Why she’ll win?

As an independent designer and fashion, Angela is competitive and passionate about her work. She’s overcome every challenge in her own life with hard work and determination and will continue to do the same on Project Runway.
