unique opportunity to network at the annual FASH Meet-Up Event on October 22! Companies such as UnderArmour, Target,
Accessories Direct, LOFT, Nordstrom, Kohl’s and many more connected with
students interested in careers within the fashion industry and provided them
with important information regarding internships, entry-level positions, resume
building and other relevant career advice.

industry. The panelists included Jami
Dunbar, Vice-President of Apparel Development – UnderArmour; Cynthia Gale, Owner

Avenue. The panel discussion was
