I often get asked questions like, “How long have you been doing this blogging/social media gig? Have you ever felt like you are a lone soldier?” To be completely honest my first year I thought I was the only blogger in this whole state of Michigan. Lol! Of course, later I found out there are so many other fellow bloggers here but I just haven’t quite gotten into the circle.
People often claim they can’t reach their goals or dreams because of the lack of resources around them. What I have learned that it is not about the resources, it is all about if you are resourceful or not. So after four years of blogging, I finally made the move to join a professional fashion organization FGI (Fashion Group International) this was my step in taking advantage of all these great resources! Becoming the board member of FGI Detroit for sure has forced me to raise up to the next level in my career!
The Fashion Group International (FGI) is a global, non-profit, professional organization with 5,000 members in the fashion industry including
apparel, accessories, beauty, and home. The FGI mission is to be the pre-eminent authority on the business of fashion and design and to help its members become more effective in their careers. To do this, FGI provides insights on major trends in person, online, and in print; access to business professionals and a gateway to the influence fashion plays in the marketplace. You can watch this video to see the long history of FGI!
Here are some benefits to become a member of FGI:
* Exclusive fashion event invitations
For example, presentations of runway trends from the New York, London, Milan, and Paris Collections. “La Mademoiselle Collection” by Valerie Garmino just finished in Paris and I could be attending if I was there. Dreaming about Paris again! Lol!
* Connect with fashion’s leaders and decision-makers
From the newest newsletter, I have spotted Vera Wang, Anna Sui, Calvin Klien, and Marc Jacobs at the FGI event!
* Fashion related trainings/seminars
For example, the Fashion Business Essentials course in New York city now.
Sounds pretty cool, right? I think so too! Lol! I am most excited in having the chance to work with those industry leaders side by side. Now drum roll please! I present you the board members of FGI Detroit!
