Middle School Students Learn About Fashion Industry

As part of the fashion design unit in our fifth-grade Visual Art class, students got to hear from two fashion industry experts before our Holiday Break.
Lisa Converse is the former head of design for White House Black Market and Abercrombie and Fitch. She shared various details about her career in fashion, including some of her designs and garment samples.

Students also learned about the marketing side the fashion industry from Canterbury parent Jessica Wells, who served as vice president of public relations and corporate communications for women’s fashion retailer, Chico’s FAS. She talked about the role of social media in brand promotion and development.
