Mara Franklin's Profile
Avatar: photo by Morningstar Graphics, model Nickie Richards.
My name is Mara. I'm married and am a mom to two crazy boys! I've been wanting to design unusual and unforgettable clothing for quite some time. I spent many years studying art and the history of fashion, when all I wanted to do was create my own! I started making prom dresses I copied from Seventeen magazine in my early formative years for my Barbie. Ken didn't care, but she looked awesome! If you can't tell already, I also like to design with a touch of humor/tongue-in-cheek styles.
My over-educational background:
BFA in Jewelry/Metalsmithing and Art History from the U of I, Champaign.
MA in Costume Studies/…
