Technical Designer for BYER California

Lucia Mendez is a technical designer for BYER California, based in San Francisco. She’s responsible for writing specs, sketching new designs, and specing sample garments. “I [joined the] company right after graduation,” she proudly states.

Lucia says that her grandfather inspired her to pursue fashion design. Today she is excited to be part of a nationally recognized fashion company. “[My work] is in an area that may not be as creative, but it is essential for the fashion industry.”

Lucia, who in 2015 earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design from The Art Institute of California—San Francisco, says that her education provided a solid foundation for her transition into the world of fashion. She recommends that current students stay focused. “Know what you want and once you start, do not stop. Don’t give up.”
