Here’s the gist: I’m a fashion geek who posts about a hodge podge of fashion marketing thoughts and personal style. I’m obsessed with over-sized accessories.
Here’s the long version: I have loved fashion for as long as I can remember. In my early days, I didn’t have many fashion choices having to wear hand-me-downs from my older sisters and a limited dress code of pleated khaki pants & polos to school. So, I think that’s were my fashion obsession began. My limited choices made me appreciate every detail and every opportunity that I had to express who I was, and that’s why I started blogging too. Fashion Hodge Podge is just a totally random place to document my personal style and capture my thoughts.
It’s kinda been a strange road to how I got to where I am. I developed a love-obsession for the fashion industry when working in photography for 3 years, which lead to working in the model industry. As a model agent for 5 years, model management and placement took me back and forth between New York and Los Angeles. Overseeing models and preparing them for the fashion industry and modeling world, photo shoots, imaging and styling influenced me to where I am today. It essentially put me on my path to seek out new fashion ideas every day. So…another reason for my blog.
I’ve also worked a few clothing retail jobs here and there too, which sparked my interest in marketing and my yearn for understanding fashion retailer’s relationships with consumers. By day, I’m a digital marketing gal and you guessed it – I’m obsessed with fashion marketing & PR. To me, its intriguing what ad campaigns resonate with consumers to make them affiliate themselves with a brand. My quest is to give mad props to fashion brands that do a great job at marketing and embracing technology. So, this blog is for me to share news, thoughts, photos, and inspirations about the ever-changing and ever-evolving world of fashion, fashion marketing, and art of it all. It’s kind of a weird hodge podge of things right?
