Edna C. Feliciano's Profile

About

Back in the days when 1957’s Chevy Bel Airs still roamed the streets of New York my beautiful grandmother, Celia, had an Atelier/ Boutique where she designed and sold bridal gowns. Sadly, she passed away a decade ago but left me with the craft which I learned at the young age of 8.

I was born in Brunswick, GA in where I only got to spend the first year of my life. Then my family moved to New York, and when I turned 6 years old we moved to Puerto Rico where I spent the majority of my adult life. After high school, I was accepted to Sagrado Corazon University in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I achieved a bachelor’s degree in Art History, just to turn around and go and pursue my dreams of studying fashion design at Benedict School of Technology in Hato Rey, Puerto Rico (Was supposed to attend FIT in New York but that didn’t happen for reasons I rather not include).

Back in the days when 1957’s Chevy Bel Airs still roamed the streets of New York my beautiful grandmother, Celia, had an Atelier/ Boutique where she designed and sold bridal gowns. Sadly, she passed away a decade ago but left me with the craft which I learned at the young age of 8.

I was born in Brunswick, GA in where I only got to spend the first year of my life. Then my family moved to New York, and when I turned 6 years old we moved to Puerto Rico where I spent the majority of my adult life. After high school, I was accepted to Sagrado Corazon University in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I achieved a bachelor’s degree in Art History, just to turn around and go and pursue my dreams of studying fashion design at Benedict School of Technology in Hato Rey, Puerto Rico (Was supposed to attend FIT in New York but that didn’t happen for reasons I rather not include). After graduation I continued designing and modeling for Unica by Caridad Fernandez a local but well known modeling agency. In 2007-2010 went to Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and Art Institute of Atlanta where I currently live to work and continue studies in interior design and fashion.

During the 80’s, I landed a job as the famous door person at Neon’s the hottest club in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and had to dress the part which I loved. Sometimes, I would still be under the sewing machine an hour before going out to work and every weekend I would be wearing a new design made by my ingenious mind and my own two hands, and always admired by friends and others…

All these things got put away for long years but one day sitting at my desk at my job, something magical happened inside me and I decided to rekindle my love for textiles, fibers, beads and here I am now.

I offer my work to all of you…every creature that is born under my sewing machine I make with love…and I hope you will love them too.

Thank you,

Juniper Evergreen

I dedicate this to Celia, my grandmother.
