To serve entrepreneurs in the fashion industry by providing opportunities to gain education, exposure, and collaborate, helping them thrive and succeed in their business.
What We Do
Throughout the year we hold evening meetings where we featured a local entrepreneur and attendees enjoy networking and a short workshop on a technical topic. Past topics have included Planning, Finances, Business Law, Social Media, Manufacturing, and Mental Health Awareness. Attendees typically include but are not limited to boutique owners, clothing stylists, models, clothing designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, and photographers. We invite you to join us at our next event.
