Thank you Texworld for having me as your Brand Ambassador! I believe we can radically change the future of fashion by bridging the information gap that prevents upcoming designers from learning best practices at an early age.
The show started in Paris, and now, across the globe. I love that Texworld USA provides an event not only to buy and sell fabric, apparel and accessories, but also an education platform to learn and expand your knowledge in business and sustainability.

We stopped at the Trend Showcase, created by Parisian Art Directors, Louis Gerin & Grégory Lamaudabout.

Dennis Smith, the Founder of Texworld told me, “It’s a huge benefit to have young people who are just starting out. We hold Seminars and TexTalks, were we discuss the ABC’s of being in the business. You not only have to be very creative and talented, you must equally have the skills to run your own successful business. … and a little bit of LUCK!”
