I’m a lucky girl with great friends. One of my best friends Mr. Luke Lopez, ask me to go to a info session with him about a workshop series here in Toronto called “A Passion for Fashion”.
The workshops were about how to break into the Toronto Fashion scene and also startup your fashion based business. I went to the info session and it sounded AMAZING… Plus it was FREE! I signed up on the spot. There were 6 workshops in total half devoted to the business side of opening a company and the other devoted to the business of fashion (Lookbooks, press kits, PR, sourcing..).Every single one of those workshops was amazing. I learned so much from them and the tips and advice given were invaluable, all the speakers were cool and down to earth – giving it to us real.
At the end of that adventure I came out of it with the Eveleen Dollery Award in Recognition of excellence in fashion business entrepreneurship, given to me at the Fashion Incubator of Toronto. It was such a great night and really encouraged me to take my business to the next level.
I wanna give a special thanks to Annie Lam and Richard Healy for all your encouragement and knowledge that you gave me, CHI MIIGETCH!! (Huge Thanks, in Ojibwe).
