My name is Ty-Juana Flores and I am an arts administrator, designer, and entrepreneur from Boston, MA. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design and Retailing with a concentration in Clothing and Textiles from Framingham State University and I am currently working on my Masters of Science Degree in Arts Administration (Performing and Visual Arts) at Boston University.
With over 8 years of experience in higher education at Berklee College of Music, I’ve worked in several staff roles within the institution and I currently oversee the Berklee Summer Initiative, where I focus on social and academic program development and design, marketing and communications, student advising, budget management, event/operational management, and student retention and success.
Prior to my career in higher education, I was a fashion design professional in NYC’s garment district where I actively worked on design teams that created private label collections, through computer aided design (CAD) for brands like Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, Dressbarn, Macy’s, Ross Stores, and Dillard’s. I moved back to Boston in 2010 and in recent years, I’ve designed websites and/or graphics for BAMS Fest, Dudley Cafe, Karen Bell Co., Yin Consulting, etc and I am currently working on my collection, MUAVDÈ.
