I was recently selected to sit on a jury selection panel as a judge for Lindenwood University in St.Louis on Sat, April 27th. This ceremonial process is a rite of passage for fashion students wherein fashion industry experts, from all over the world, are invited to critique the student’s collection. After much deliberation the judges pick the top designers. Only the top designers are allowed to participate in the end of the year fashion show. I’ve already had the pleasure of being a judge at my Alma Mater Stephens College but I am delighted to judge for Lindenwood. When I was a student, remember feeling the rush of this very intense, fun, and exciting time!
