March Event: Social Media and Fashion
We are only a week away from our March event, and we want to know what’s in your closet. Not the one in your room, but on Pinterest! This month we will be focusing on social media and fashion, with quite an awesome panel of folks ready to talk to you. In addition to our amazing panelists, @iStrategyLabs was kind enough to provide us space at their swanky office.
Our March panel will discuss the many facets of fashion through social media platforms. From blogging to branding to retail outlets, find out how pins, likes, follows and shares are influencing the fashion industry. Excited? Check out our panelists below!
Moderator: Eliot Payne | AccoutreMe | @eliotpayne
Patrice Washington | Yours/Mine Shop | @prjwashington & @YMSSSthrift
Patrice Washington is a DC native with a love for social media. During the hours of 9-5, you’ll find her behind the lectern, facilitating career development workshops on a variety of topics such as “How to Dress for Success” and “What do Your Clothes say About You?”
As a Human Resources professional by trade, Patrice knows that it’s equally important to look good on paper and in person. In 2012, she created the Yours/Mine Secondhand Shopping Soiree (YMSSS), a women’s new and gently used clothing shopping event designed to suit the needs of every woman’s style and budget!
