Andrew was 18 when he came to the US to attend UC San Diego studying Microbiology. Thinking about going to med school after he graduates, he stumbled into a costume design class in his sophomore year. From then on, he found his calling and transferred to Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.
Not knowing how to draw or sew, he persisted to perfect his skills and graduated with honors. He has also won awards on both menswear and womenswear in his final year at Otis.
Upon graduation, he has worked in different cities across the nation - from Los Angeles to New York and most recently Dallas. His experience spans from various markets in both men's and women's categories.
