SamiaLyn Desgins – Fashion Design Illustrator for your Wedding Day
During these unusual times, I’ve been reaching out to people I’ve always wanted to connect with. Samantha Shammas did the same to me a few weeks ago through Linked In. I was immediately so impressed with her talent and the work she has accomplished in fashion and illustration. Through our first phone conversation, we quickly discovered we are kindred spirits, and have begun to work and support one another.
Samantha is a native Washingtonian, but after 10 years of living in the Big Apple, she’s a New Yorker at heart (me too!). During that decade, she graduated with a degree in fashion design from Parsons New School for Design, concentrating in evening wear and couture techniques, eventually finding her way into the world of bridal. She’s designed for companies such as the fabulous wedding dress designers Sareh Nouri and Morilee, two designers I admire and have seen many times with my clients. During these tenures in bridal fashion, Samantha gained experience in retail, production, and fashion week events. Samantha’s inspiration is drawn from traveling and exploring the intricacies of new places and cultures around the world, something I share as well.
Art with a Purpose
Fueled by her love of fashion and art, she officially started her illustration business, SamiaLynn in 2017. Through her drawings, Samantha specializes in highlighting cultural diversity and women’s rights, and loves to support others of all backgrounds and orientations to make her art more inclusive. As I said, we are kindred spirits. She works with business owners as well as directly to consumers to bring their unique visions to life through beautiful pieces of art. In addition, Samantha’s kind heart and talent will deliver an amazing experience. I have now added Samantha’s service to my full weekend coverage collection. Please contact me for more information! Here are examples of what Samantha has illustrated for weddings:
In 2019, Samantha moved back to the DC area and continues to grow her service offerings including freelance fashion design. This can include storyboard illustrations for Wedding Planners, fashion consulting, or live illustration during your event. Contact Samantha for more information on her services!
Let's create your family legacy together.
