Get to know the presenters

Belkis Whyte

 Belkis Whyte began her career working for two of the industry’s most influential designers, Ralph Lauren and Natori  upon graduating with a BS in Fashion Design & Merchandising from Framingham State University. The invaluable experience gained from working within these two design houses inspired Belkis to fulfill her lifelong dream and launch her line, Dreams Of Fash, in 2012.
When Belkis is designing, she is inspired by shape, print, and color. Every design focuses on flattering a real woman's body.  Belkis' technical knowledge of a garment’s proper fit and design, combined with her innate creative abilities, results in an effortless and wearable line that reflect the kind of woman she is herself; strong, sexy, fun, and fearless.

 Belkis believes in the importance of sisterhood ( her own sister, Lois, being one of her biggest inspirations), inspiring others and giving back. Her designs have been worn and/or featured by Beyonce,  the Frugal Fab 5, Gugu, Fashion Bomb Daily, E! News, Jade of Blind Benny and more. When she is not designing, she is spending time with family in Boston or New Hampshire, or honing in on her interior design skills. As a mentor she continues to provide guidance in helping other young, aspiring fashion designers realize their dreams.
