Nara Perez grew up in North Carolina and moved to Los Angeles two weeks after graduating high school in 2012 to pursue a career in fashion. She graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising with an A.A. in Merchandise Product Development and B.S., in Business Management. She currently works as an Assistant Designer at a corporate design house specializing in childrenswear licensing. When she’s not designing clothing for toddler’s she is trying out different brunch spots, attending concerts, art galleries, shopping, traveling, working out, and of course documenting her life via social media platforms. Nara’s favorite thing to do is find the next “It” place before it becomes hyped up. She hopes she can help enhance your weekend plans with adventurous suggestions!
