Avery Plewes is designing her dreams

Via Teen Vogue  - "t’s impressive enough that at 28, Avery Plewes is working as the lead costume designer on Amandla Stemberg’s upcoming movie,Everything, Everything. But add in the fact that she is a self-coined two-time college dropout, and her young success becomes even more remarkable. Did we mention she also counts Troian Bellsario as one of her friends, having previously worked on a few projects with her? Yeah, this girl is pretty rad. Here at Teen Vogue, we love to hear about the unconventional ways people are making it in fashion, since, as Avery proves, there’s no right or wrong way to discover and chase your dreams. We spoke with the sartorial genius about how she was able to find her calling at a time when she was feeling a bit lost, what she did to rise through the ranks, and the lessons she learned along the way. And trust us, her advice isn’t just golden for those who hope to work in fashion — it’s universally rich."
