I'm back! And now as the President of Kansas City Fashion Week!
It's been just a minute since I wrote my last blog post. Life happened and I just couldn't keep up regularly blogging with how crazy the ride has been. But I'm back and ready to start fresh and with a new vision.
Many of you know me as the Executive Director of Kansas City Fashion Week, who helped President, Phil Willoughby, get the event off the ground in 2011 and never looked back. Well I'm happy to say that in these past 3 years, KCFW has grown exponentially and I have been promoted to President of KCFW as of March 2014. It's a huge honor with a lot of responsibility, but I love every minute of it and couldn't be happier with the promotion!
I was also humbly honored to be chosen to receive the Rock the Block Impression Award this year for my work in the fashion community in Kansas City. Unfortunately, I was on a trip to NYC for the annual Fashion Group International Regional Director's Conference during the fashion show and awards ceremony, but my wonderful KCFW committee stood up for me and accepted the award. Below are photos of KCFW Director of Support, Sarah Russell presenting me my award a few weeks after the actual ceremony.
I'll be using my blog to give you a behind the scenes look at my life as President of KCFW and all the other events and groups I'm involved with. You'll learn about what I do on a day to day basis and I'll also be sharing lots of tips along the way for those wanting to get into the fashion industry. Hope to see you all at the next KCFW!
