On April 9th, 7 TCD students attended Dallas Career Day at the World Market Center in Dallas, Texas.  They were led by Senior Lecturer Carol Easley and Assistant Professor Dr. Harriet McLeod. The annual event is hosted by The Fashion Group International and presented by Paris American Academy and Brighton.  The event featured many guest speakers and seminars. Among these was Shirin Askari from Season 6 of Project Runway , and the keynote speaker, fashion designer and Texas native Jodi Arnold.  Jodi has had great success in the fashion industry and just recently collaborated on a line with The Limited.  She shared lots of great tips with students on how to achieve success in the field.  

Career Day also featured a number of seminars on retail buying, fashion show production, styling, and global sourcing, among others. The annual fashion show’s theme was “Fashion Royalty” and it paid tribute to numerous fashion icons from Alexander McQueen to Lady Gaga.  For those TCD majors who attended, Dallas Career Day was a fun and educational experience and a great opportunity to learn about the industry and the textile and apparel professions.
