Bio

As early as eight years old, Denise found herself drawn to exploring the art of fashion design and

trying to interject it to any school project or assignment.  This sparked a curiosity that still drives

Denise to explore the interplay between textures and colors. 

 

After graduating with honors from the University of Puerto Rico with a Bachelor of Fine Arts,

Denise decided to pursue a Degree in Fashion Design from Altos de Chavón School of Design, a

Parsons Affiliate located in the Dominican Republic.  Thereafter, she obtained a degree in

Fashion Marketing from Parsons School of Design in New York.  She has studied in Perugia,

Italy.  Prior to starting her own company, she worked at Cejon Accessories in New York City for

over ten years.  There, she designed and oversaw the creation of various types of collections for

Kenneth Cole, Betsey Johnson and Steve Madden.   Her work at Cejon Accessories also

included inception and development of various lines of accessories and swimwear for major

department stores such as Bloomingdales, Macys, Lord and Taylor and Nordstrom

After giving birth to her daughter Denise decided to start a collection of decorative pillows and

Dna Home Accents born. Dna Home Accents started as a cutting edge pillow line that explores

the interplay of art, fashion and spaces.   Fabric is Denie's canvas of expression, except it

doesn’t belong in a wall.   For her, materials are a medium to explore the wonders of color and

textures.   With the pillow collection came customers interested in Interior Design services and

with that came the decision to go back to school and obtain a Degree Interior Design from San

Juan School of Interior Design in Puerto Rico.
