Corey Vaughn is the CEO of Dark Horse Studio. I find Corey so inspiring and so hard working I really just wanted to share his journey with you all! Below he writes about his life now and where he has drawn inspiration throughout his life!
My story pretty much begins when I learned to sew at the age of 6. I began by hand sewing and making barbie doll clothes out of socks and making myself tops and dresses out of pillow cases and such. I will never forget the day I stayed home from school playing rookie in the first grade so that I could make myself this specific top out of an old pillow case. My mom would get so mad at me for messing up all of my socks haha I got my first sewing box and materials on my 8th birthday and I continued to advance just by hand then when I was 10 I got my first sewing machine and embroidery machine. I taught myself how to operate the machines and how to cut my material. I never used patterns because I hate them, I would come up with a design in my head and cut from memory.
