I am currently working at St. Croix Cleaners as their Alterations Specialist. Many of the fashion design programs I’ve taken at St. Kates have helped with properly fitting and perfecting the alterations needed to please the customer. Also, some merchandising programs helped with understanding the wants and needs of my clientele.
My advice I would give future Katies of the FD&M Department is don’t be afraid to take charge and lead. Communicate and connect with your colleagues and clients. Remember you have a natural gift that reflects the hard work and determination that you accomplished to achieve your goals.
