Rene describes his personality as edgy, passionate and uncensored. Growing up, he always tried to fit in with the crowd but it wasn’t until he started high school that he was able to find his true passion and love for design. He first started designing clothes at the age of five, when he started taking clothes people weren’t wearing and turning them into clothing for dolls. Self-taught, his mother bought Rene a sewing machine at age 14 and with the help of YouTube, he perfected his skills. Rene likes to push the boundaries on his clothing as he primarily designs for the confident woman. He prides himself on thinking outside of the box and not designing the typical look. Rene plans on going to FIDM, FIT or Parsons to study design and ultimately wants to have his own fashion brand and be a world-renowned designer.
