I have been in the fashion industry more years then I want to admit (I also don’t want to tell you how old I am). Through the years people have asked me many questions about the business since they hear all kinds of things. Some crazy things like when a guy from a small town asked me if everyone in New York needs to carry a gun (seriously!?!). Or minor things like does everyone go out every night. Well, who has the energy for that. The following 10 are common misconceptions.
Maria Pesin knows fashion, especially the business side of the fashion industry. Do you know how Manolo Blahnik got his start in the industry? How he leveraged a paltry 3 grand into one of the world’s most famous luxury brands? While she doesn’t take credit for Manolo’s success, Maria has walked a similar path on numerous occasions. The world of fashion is not silicon valley, and it has nothing to do with Madison Avenue marketing. In this industry there is ALWAYS room for something new and exciting, but you have to have your ducks in a row. If that’s what you need, believe me, Maria is the General Patton of fashion ducks!
