|On Planet Pepper|
I knew a designer who worked out of his apartment. It was a 5 story walk up with no ventilation and two cats. Who wants to stand in someone’s stuffy apartment next to a sink full of dirty dishes so you can be measured for a dress? Location is everything, and that place was nothing.
Planet Pepper is a professional studio space that is in the middle the Garment District of New York City on 39th St. While consulting with you on your outfit, we can look for the perfect fabric downstairs in the neighborhood.
I founded and own Planet Pepper. You can call me Vinnie. I got my Masters in Creative Writing from Queens College/CUNY. But I fell in love with all sorts of writing everything from plays and articles to grants and business plans. I won several competitions. Sometimes I even teach business communication at local colleges.
