Since her early years in Texas, Samantha Plasencia describes herself as having always been creative. Her earliest fashion creation (a pink, 3-tier skirt with a black zipper) is a far cry from her designs of today, leaning mostly towards materials like sateen, leather and chiffon. After studying basic sewing at the University of the Incarnate Word, she works by day in the field of visual display. Finding inspiration in everything around her, the design she’s most proud of is an origami dress.

Believing that while “it’s anyone’s game”, Samantha’s strategy is perseverance through every challenge.
