” Dress how you would like to be addressed”
Those are a few words I said to the filled room of Philadelphia’s University college students. I had the pleasure of joining a panel of some of the city’s fashion insiders for the Philadelphia University Black Retail Action Group’s (BRAG) “Talkin’ Fashion” event.
BRAG is a 40 year old non-profit organization that promotes professional development, education and mentorship for minorities that are interested in the retail industry. BRAG also helps to provide networking and internship opportunities for minorities in hopes to encourage and create true diversity.
It was a honor to be one of the panelist, as I still consider myself an up and comer. I actually learned a lot from the other panelist so it was very well rounded event. They were also collecting donations to raise funds for future BRAG endeavors. Thanks to the ladies of BRAG for having me. K.R.T.
