Style Week JA | Event #3 Careers in International Fashion Symposium -DAY EVENT

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr
For the first time since its inception, Style Week JA introduced a symposium with the theme Careers in International Fashion which was targeted towards those interested in a Career in Fashion.
Here in Jamaica when we think of a Career in Fashion we think “Designer” or “Model” when there are literally thousands of careers in the Fashion Industry.
The event was held at the Savannah Suite at Eden Gardens Wellness Resort & Spa. In attendance were students from Papine High School, Wolmer’s High School for Girls, Portmore Community College, Waterford High School, St. Andrew High School, St. Hugh’s and Tarrant High School.
Speakers of the day included:

       Janique Jude: Marketing Manager, Lee’s Fifth Avenue
       Mrs. Andrea Dempster-Chung: British Council Arts- Creative Consultant and Coach
       Mr. Daniel Edwards: Founder/CEO Total One Eighty
       Mrs. Lisa McIntosh-Aris: Celebrity Hair – Stylist & Fashion Designer
       Jermaine “JD” Downer: Saint  International Model
       Barbra Grant: Saint International Model

Each speaker spoke about their journey and re-counted the steps they took to create a career out of Fashion—including the good and the bad. One thing is clear, in order to be successful in the Fashion Industry, you must have a love for it, be patient and willing to work harder than everybody else.

Hello There ??
We have a small favor to ask. People are reading the Haute Lifestyle than ever since our recent placement in the South Florida Blogger Awards but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. We do not have investors and everything Blog related is funded out of pocket– we want to keep our journalism as fun and open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Our article takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective and voices matter – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our posts, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. 

For as little as $1, you can support The Haute Lifestyle
