Every time I have a new assignment or event, my stylist was always good about notifying me about it. About a month ago I received an email from Terri requesting that I meet her in the city to discuss few important items she and I needed to brain storm for Boston Fashion Week happening the…

Designer Luke Aaron’s Fashion Show

The more fashion shows I attended, the more I just couldn’t wait to kick-start my career within the fashion industry. I was fortunate enough (again) to be able to attend yet ANOTHER fashion show.

A Mentor Inspires

I am so lucky to have had the best mentor anyone can ask for. Julie Burgardt is the digital manager at Araks, an entrepreneur, and the person who I worked most closely with. This summer, Julie has taught me valuable lessons that I will bring with me to all my future jobs. The first is…

Learning to Leverage Technology

For example, retail stores may have certain technologies which track many different metrics throughout the…
