The seminar part of the trip is put on by The University of Texas' Texas Exes. They allow a group of students to meet with alumni and are guided around the city making office visits to various companies in the industry of their study. My textile and apparel group will be visiting Macy's, FIT, Joseph Abboud, Blue Stripe PR, Fendi and touring Lori Goldstein's studio (omg soooooo excited, btw Lori was named one of StyleCaster's 50 Most Stylish New Yorkers!)
As excited as I am about going to all these amazing companies, I'm still in shock of the surreal guest speaker we got to meet with today. The great Iris Apfel.
It was such a surreal experience being in the same room as Mrs. Apfel and listening to her stories and taking in all the advice she was giving us. I'm forever grateful to our leader Mrs. Prideaux for setting up this amazing opportunity and can't wait to see what New York has in store for me!
Stay tuned for more photos and updates of my trip!!
