She advises new Fashion Club Presidents to enjoy the experience, and stay organized.
Creating a Fashion Club and serving as president has been instrumental in learning about leadership and building connections with people in the industry.
My favorite memory is when we went to our first event, as a club. We attended the StyleMaker Awards at Tootsies in Houston, Texas, and had the opportunity to meet so many people from the industry, including Fady Armanious, Vivian Wise, and many local bloggers.
My advice for Fashion Club presidents is to always enjoy your club. The year goes by so fast that you need to remember this is supposed to be fun. Always stay organized because it will make it so much easier. Don’t ever think your club can’t do bigger and better things.
