Simone Young F1402Simone Young: Student, Associate of Applied Science, Fashion Design, The Art Institute of New York City

Born in Kingstown, Jamaica, Simone Young found early inspiration to explore fashion design following her upbringing in the Caribbean. There she developed a strong appreciation for the energy, architecture, color and vibrancy that only Kingston has to offer.

As a teenager, her family moved to New York City and prior to enrolling into The Art Institute of New York City fashion program, she designed and crafted for Creative Costumes in New York.

“My design aesthetic focuses on simplicity and sophistication with elements of whimsy,” she says.
