If you are following along with me on Instagram, you know I just returned from a fabulous trip to New York! I am the Co-Regional Director of the Kansas City Fashion Group International chapter and each year the regions meet for conference at the New York head quarters. This weekend was filled with amazing parties, networking opportunities with fashion industry leaders, and great motivational speakers. I had such an fabulous time!
Fashion Group International has been a huge part of my connection with so many people in Kansas City and beyond. I have made some life long friends and colleges through the two FGI trips I have made to New York and the events and partnerships I have been involved in planning for the Kansas City region. So many people reach out to me and ask how I have made things happen for myself in the fashion industry and I truly believe it has to do with the people you connect with and the relationships you build through networking.
Lord and Taylor New York hosted our FGI conference in their department store theater.
I love the hustle and bustle of the City! Hailing cabs and grabbing delicious pastries and fruit for breakfast!
Elaine Turner hosted our fist night's networking happy hour in her gorgeous uptown store!
Our Merit Awards dinner was held at the elite Cosmopolitan Club. The view from the terrace was so gorgeous!
Dinner was followed by drinks on the rooftop of the Strand Hotel with an unbelievable view of the Empire State Building.
This trip to New York was really inspiring to me. It was what I needed to feel a little spark of excitement again for all the work I have been doing lately. Sometimes, getting out and away can make things seam much more clear. That is why I LOVE to travel so much. I'm looking forward to the next couple of months! Stay tuned.....
