THE FASHION INDUSTRY IS INSANELY CUTTHROAT

And since everyone is tight lipped and secretive, no one tells you how to get ahead or what skills to learn.

Things are different here.



We all work hard to stay ahead in this cutthroat industry, and I prefer┬áto do it together with you. It’s much more fun that way.

I have just as much to learn from you as you from me, and I love hearing your story. My inbox is always open and I invite you to introduce yourself.

Thank you for being here – none of this would be possible without you.
