Jillian Manna’s been drawing and creating as far back as she can remember — and has always wanted to share her love of art and design.
A graduate of St. Joseph by-the-Sea High School, the Eltingville resident went on to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology where she received an associate’s degree in applied science in visual presentation and exhibition design.
Her class scope was broad in design which afforded her the opportunity to learn graphics and event design and interior and exhibition design — and the list just went on from there.
“This major gave me a unique and well rounded education in design because it touched so many different areas,” she the astute 27 year-old.
At FIT she studied business and earned a bachelor of science degree in fashion merchandising management, allowing her to explore the business side and the art side of her major.
