After entering the fashion industry as an intern and working her way to a head designer, Stacey decided to launch MY STYLE CAMP, running classes at Portledge Day School, Michaels & The Sands Point Preserve.
“I went into the office and brought my sketches and they were impressed,” she said. “But they wanted me to learn to draw on the computer, so I did.” Saltzman’s internship, she said, turned into an assistant job, and then an associate designer position and, finally, she was named head designer.
“I was doing well,” she said. “I was the head designer for a Calvin Klein Jeans project, and then a Jessica Simpson kids project, and then landed a freelance job working for Tommy Hilfiger girls, and I loved those jobs. I was traveling to China and had a very big responsibility.”
Before Saltzman left Kids Headquarters New York, she said, she was given a spot in Michael’s in Manhasset to test teaching a small class.
“I’m lucky I have the chance to pass along my talent,” she said.
