A resident of Dayton, Ohio, Barnes graduated in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in fine art, fashion design, from Savannah College of Arts and Design. She’s worked as a design intern for designer Michael Kors; as an intern for bridal designer Beth Elis; and as a bridal stylist for Alfred Angelo. Barnes, who aspires to have her own label and boutique, said, “I have been hearing great things about CFW for years, even before I thought about applying. To have the opportunity to be a part of it will be a memory of a lifetime.”
