Michele Cosentino is the creative behind Top Banana.
Her designs are inspired by her childhood in Upstate New York.
A simpler time, the 1970’s and 80’s, when summers were
long and full of boredom, time was told by ringing church bells
and illuminated street lights prompted a quick bike ride home
for family dinner.

Michele is dyslexic. She has a B.A. from Boston University. She studied graphic design at the Portfolio Center in Atlanta, GA. After a 15 year graphic design career in NYC, she returned to school at Parsons School of Design and received an AAS in Fashion Design.
She continues to take classes on new mediums and techniques.

Michele lives in Westport, Connecticut with her husband Ari,
her son Uzi, her daughter Wallis and a cat named Lady Di.
