Designs by Deborah Barraza

Accessories are versatile. There is magic in being able to transform an outfit into many different lives with different accessories.

Accessories are personal.  Think of the watch your grandfather always wore. Or the necklace your best friend never leaves the house without.  

I am a native Angeleno who spent my college years in Bennington, Vermont playing music and hunting tag sales for the perfect vintage fashion pieces.  At the end of every semester, I shipped home more jewelry, and shoes than clothing. It became apparent I needed to pursue a career in fashion accessories.

I have spent over 10 years designing and developing fashion accessories for mass-market, junior and contemporary lines, both private label and licensed. My experience includes hand sketching, computer aided design, technical specs, material & trim sourcing, trend research & forecasting, presentation boards, factory communication, sample fit, review & corrections and line building.
