This year, FMDS has begun highlighting a “Member of the Meeting” at each meeting we hold. The Member of the Meeting is granted to an FMDS member who has done something noteworthy, from going above and beyond in getting involved in FMDS to getting a good grade on a test or project. Our first Member of the Meeting, Ali Firich, received a 100% on her most recent Apparel Quality Evaluation exam! Learn more about Ali below:
FNO was an amazing experience! I enjoyed interning at Kirna Zabête for the day and got the chance to meet a few designers including Lizzie Fortunato, Thakoon, and Prabal Gurung. I also had a celebrity sighting of Nicky Hilton who was shopping at Kirna Zabête while we were at the store! My favorite part of the trip was walking around the city on FNO.
My favorite part of FMDS is the Spring Fashion show! I had such a fun time modeling in the show last year and I hope to model again this year.
My favorite designer is Victoria Beckham.
It would be a sequin dress, top, or jacket (basically anything sequin!) by Rachel Zoe. I just love sequins because it’s fun and it can spice up any outfit for going out!
I hope to get a job as a buyer in New York, D.C., or any other city on the east coast!
