My name is Ty-Juana Flores and I love everything about art, music, and fashion. I received my undergraduate degree in fashion design/clothing & textiles from Framingham State University. For several years following my studies, I worked as a womenswear apparel designer and a jr. account executive for showrooms in New York City. I designed private label collections for Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, Dressbarn, Macy's, Ross Stores, and Dillard’s and worked with apparel manufacturers in both the US and Asia…such a DOPE chapter in my life!
I moved away from that chapter and joined another creative world: higher education. I currently work at Berklee College of Music where I focus on social and academic program development and design, budget management, event/operational management, and student retention and success for Berklee’s year-long Berklee Summer Initiative (BSI) program, a program that was designed to focus and reflect on African traditions and history within music, dance, and theater.
I am currently pursuing my Masters degree in Arts Administration at Boston University and I live in Dorchester, MA with my twin aka daughter, Chloè. I spend my free time stalking art exhibits and galleries, going to jazz clubs and concerts, and traveling.
