Kate Vandermeer, founder and director of ISpyStyle and the official blogger for this years L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival has come up with a fabulous idea for youngsters keen to get into the fashion industry.
“After years of speaking on panels about my own career path and lecturing in Fashion at RMIT University and Whitehouse Institute of Design, I felt there was a gap in the market to offer students and emerging creatives the opportunity to learn about the various roles within the Fashion Industry by running some interactive Career Workshops. They are fun, informative yet realistic about what to expect from a career in fashion. Ive collated a fabulous group of inspiring but down to earth speakers who will share their journey and advice. I only wish I had this kind of opportunity when I was growing up!”
The result is a one day series of workshops where you can attend some or all of these informative sessions in order to find out more from the people who know.
With a high calibre of industry speakers including Cathryn Wills (Creative Director Mimco), Philip Boon (Celebrity Stylist), Aimee McCallum (Creative Director Tiger Peacock & Freelance VM Husk Stores), Jade Roberts (PR Manager Sportsgirl), Kate McKibbin (Managing Editor Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily), and Rachel Tuffery (Director Pronto Productions).
To be held as part of L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival cultural programme, the event takes place on Saturday 13th March at Melbourne’s Whitehouse Institute of Design. You can attend just one session for $35, or pay $55 for the whole day (booking fees additional) and you also receive a gift bag. Tickets available through to purchase at iSpyStyle.net (PayPal) and Moshtix.com.au
