Designing Women Friends of DT&G Magazine on Facebook 3

More of our friends at Facebook are surfacing, and we're thrilled to share with you! The disappointing part of this quest is for every designer who has cited her credentials, there are four who have no entries in the "about" fields of their Facebook accounts. While I understand how some might not want to reveal that information on Facebook, if they're showing work and interested in growing their following, we'd at least like to know something! We are happy to meet Designing Women on Facebook Ira Yuliara Designing Women on Facebook Monique Shabby Designing Women on Facebook Leslie Carr, and Designing Women on Facebook Ramsha Malik March 7, 2017
