Joanne's impressive resume starts with studies in architecture and afterward in fashion design at Parsons. She interned for top fashion houses such as Vivienne Tam, Jill Stuart and Ji Haye Couture. After graduation, Joanne became a freelance designer for Reem Acra's eveningwear collection. From 2004 to 2006, she joined J. Mendel's design team for the evening and luxury ready-to-wear lines.
