See You Next Semester!

By: Jewel Watters, Fashion Merchandising Major

 

As the fall semester is officially coming to a close yet again, and the holidays are upon us. I thought I would reflect back on all the amazing memories I made this semester. This semester taught me many things, such as visual display, the behind the scenes of the fashion business world, and a sneak peek into how it’s really like to work in the fashion industry.

This semester, I was in an internship class where I needed to complete 150 hours at a job site related to my major and career goals. I am honored to say I am working at Charles Men’s Shop, Inc. right here in Batavia, New York at 200 East Main Street! While working here, I was able to acquire the necessary skills that I will need in the fashion industry and further my career. I am very thankful that I was given the opportunity to practice what I have learned in the classroom.

Our fashion students  worked on deciding for a theme for the next fashion show, “Limitless” taking place on May 4, 2019 at 7 pm. I am so excited to announce that my scene concept has been chosen for the show. My scene “Promise” is wedding scene and will transport you to a winter wedding. I can’t wait for you all to see what I have in store for you next year!

Open HouseI was also given amazing opportunities to travel to Rochester to go to a speaker series with my fashion program, and learned valuable information, and learned a few things about starting my own business later on in life. I was also given the opportunity to travel to Buffalo to go to the Buffalo Niagara Sales and Marketing Executives meeting where I was able to interact with fellow entrepreneurs, and find some amazing contacts along the way.

I hope you all had an instructive fall semester and hope you have an amazing Winter Break. I hope to see you all at GCC’s 38th annual fashion show ‘Limitless’ on May 4th at 7 pm where you will see “Promise”.
