Seeking opportunities in creating, critiquing, and teaching fashion.

Lakyn (pronounced Lay-kin) Carlton (pronounced Carl-ton) is passionate about creating fashion, sustainability in fashion, and talking about fashion. With nearly two decades of sewing experience under her belt--having started when she was only 11 years old--Lakyn launched her eponymous fashion label, Lakyn the Label, in 2020, after the COVID-19 health crisis all but decimated her freelance design career. Her feminine but classic design aesthetic, along with her meticulous construction and eye for detail permeate every piece she creates, and her latent vanity allowed for her to write this entire paragraph in third person without cringing...too much.
