Clara Swagel



My name is Clara Swagel, I am a graduating fashion design BFA student at Parsons NYC. I have started gaining experience working in the fashion industry since the age of 16 and have worked at numerous fashion houses such as Fleur Du Mal, Halston and Proenza Schouler for the most recent one.
Textile and conceptual exploration as well as knitting are key components of my work. I am very proficient at research and development, and have technical skills such as putting together tech packs, adobe creative suite, technical construction for both woven fabrics and knit fabrics and shoe design.

Being French and American, I have native fluency in both French and English. Additionally I have notions in Spanish and Italian.
