Noel Martin: Turning Dreams Into Reality

Many people have great dreams of what they want to do with their lives. The thing about conquering these dreams, however, is that it takes more than most people are able or willing to give to fulfill them. Not only must you have talent, you must also have determination, passion, and the desire to do what it takes to get to where you want to be. Noel Martin possesses all of these things, and more. 

After attending high school with Noel, it was obvious that she is a unique person, to say the least. She was extremely creative and opinionated, never altering herself to conform, but instead embracing her traits, and standing out.  Her dreams were too big to fit in Covington, Louisiana, so she packed up her sewing kit and desire to be a fashion designer, and relocated to Georgia to attend Savanna College of Art and Design. After a few semesters of strengthening her talents at SCAD, she moved to the Big Apple, New York City, where she now attends Parsons the New School for Design.

Two highly prestigious art schools and many boxes of hair dye later, Noel Martin has truly blossomed into one of the most gifted and passionate people I have had the honor to know. Because she possesses the talent, desire, and determination, Noel has done what most young designers will only ever dream of…she has been selected to preview her Pre-Fall Collection in New Orleans Fashion Week this March. This blog post is dedicated to Noel, someone who has shown where hard work and passion will get you. Congrats, Noel! I knew you could do it!
