This past Saturday, Atlanta enjoyed #CocktailswithClairexMissDiddyLA, where they, along with a panel of established fashion & entertainment entrepreneurs, candidly explained how they broke into the fashion industry. The panel included Fashion Bomb Daily Founder- Claire Sulmers, Fashion Stylists- Tameka Foster, Shun Melson, & Marlo Hampton, Entertainment Gurus- Shanti Das & Miss Diddy LA, and a special appearance from Keri Hilson!
If you missed the discussion, here are some great insights if you are trying to work within Fashion & Entertainment:
- Always be your true & authentic self
- Give 110% wether you are an intern or owner.
- Social media is a great business card, but it is not the end all be all.
- Don't listen to negative influences.
- Don't be afraid to take a leap of faith.
- Loubs are nice, but Invest in yourself.
- Sometimes you have to fail once or twice to succeed.
