So first and foremost I'd like to apologize for my lack of blog posting lately. My life has been super hectic because all of the responsibilities that were placed on me. This semester I have two leadership positions and one of them being the President of the fashion organization near and dear to my heart, The Fashion Executives. I am so glad to say that I was actually there when the organization was actually being created and to see it grow/ be in its second year on campus is beyond me.
So it has been established that every Fall semester that TFE will put on our annual Fashion Expo at USF. It's a large fashion show that has multiple designers, models, and is not only open to USF students but also to the Tampa Bay Community. Being that I have been President since January, I already knew to prepare myself in the back of my mind to get ready to be in charge of such a large show.
So my team and I planned like crazy since the summer! My detail oriented and extreme planning skills definitely came into play. The show's name was called Metamorphosis and the theme was showcasing the light and dark of society. I'll post a few photographs below:
After being in charge of planning Metamorphosis I learned so many necessary skills that will be utilized in the future for my fashion event planning business. I honestly enjoyed creating the concept, gathering designers/models/artists, and ensuring that the show would run smoothly. Did I forget to mention that our show was great?! As a student organization on campus we were very proud that we had around 200 guests in attendance, 7 vendors, 6 designers/boutique owners, and over 25 models. Not to sound like I'm bragging but I rather be positive in regards to our show opposed to a few others (no shade intended).
I honestly can't wait to finalize everything else that The Fashion Executives will have in store! I have to say it did get stressful and overwhelming (but who doesn't enjoy fashion related stress LOL) Although my term as president is almost over I could say that it was one of the best decisions I could have made in my life.
