I am Jose Criales-Unzueta. I was born and raised in La Paz, Bolivia and at age 19 I relocated to Savannah, Georgia to further pursue my education. I am currently a senior student at the SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design), where I am received a major in Fashion Design with a minor in Accessory Design.

I have worked as a Costume Designer and Production Assistant prior to my college education and have worked with Fossil in a sponsored project by SCAD and interned as Handbag Design Intern at Kate Spade New York and as a Men's Knits Design Intern at Banana Republic.

Currently, I work as a designer in the Men’s Leathergoods team at Coach in New York while working on developing my own line based in Brooklyn. I also freelance as a stylist and editorial art director in fashion.
