She graduated from CAPA where she created the school's first large-scale fashion show - raising sponsorships, approaching local and student designers and creating a collection herself. That show, called Spiked Fashion, ignited Tori's interest in the fashion industry, in particular in producing fashion shows.
Since then, she has worked on a Pittsburgh-based lifestyles magazine, attended London College of Fashion, worked on many local fashion shows, and this December she will graduate from Duquesne University with a degree in Integrated Marketing Communication and Studio Art.
Tori designs for fashion shows, private clients, friends and family. Her design aesthetic is usually simple but with embellishment and luxury finishes that set her pieces apart from the crowd. She believes the worst crime of fashion is to blend in, and vies to be unique in everything she does.
This is the fourth year that Tori Mistick will design for and produce the fashion show for the Madcap Masquerade.
