My name is Sabrina Nowling and I am a transfer student in the fine arts program at The University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. I am from Canton, Ohio but have lived in Cincinnati for the past sixteen years. I took this class because I have been obsessed with fashion ever since I saw my first Esprit catalogue when I was six years old and would one day like to design textiles for fashion companies. I knew of Bonnie Cashin’s place in fashion history as one the first activewear designers, but I did not know that she was so hands on in every aspect of her design process. I find her very inspiring and now think of her often also being someone who finds it important to design and control every part of my own artistic practice and business.
