Fire Victims Donation Box

Hello Everyone! In hopes to help the victims of the fires that have been happening close by, Fashion Society along with the rest of the Fashion Management Program want to help, a donation box will be placed in the fashion suite of the JB building. Donations may include: clothes, toiletries, non-perishable food, baby items, animal food, bedding, shoes and any other things you feel may help those who have lost everything in these fires. Leslie in the fashion suite will also be taking any money donations. Many people have been affected and lost most of their belongings so anything will help. Please help out and spread the word!

Many Thanks,

Fashion Society

Hello Fashion Society!

Hello Everyone! I hope everyone’s fall semester is going fabulous! Well, mine is great but filled with plenty of readings and projects to keep me busy. My name is Heather K. Martinez and I will be your Media Manager for this 2011-2012 school year. This year should be another great one! I have been here at UIW for the past three years and this will be my fourth and hopefully last one but I have loved every day here. I am a merchandising student and have aspirations of working in the athletic apparel industry, with Nike in particular. Last semester though I actually went abroad for the semester and attended London College of Fashion. No one word can really explain or describe that experience but lets just say it was AAAAAAMAZING! I totally recommend anyone interested in going abroad, DO IT! All the paper work and money it cost to do something like this will all be well worth it. Anyone interested or have any questions at all please feel free to ask, the experience and process I went through to get there is still fresh in my head so take advantage! When I did it  I had no one to give me advice, so it was stressful at times. BUT it felt so good once I finally had arrived in London, I was like ‘Oh my word, I actually did it! I am in London!!!’ So rewarding in the end, trust me. Remember though, I am not gonna lie it is very expensive but if you are determined things will work out and it will happen. I was blessed enough to have received a scholarship I had applied for specifically to go abroad that helped pay for the remanding balance I had left plus extra. So anything is possible! Anyways, let me know if you would like to know more about that.

I do not know if any of you are familiar with tumblr but I have become obsessed with it! Check my personal one out  http://bowties-n-blazers.tumblr.com/, it is just a photo blog. I also have a blog that I wrote while I was abroad with my entires of all my adventures and photos that I took there, http://uiw.typepad.com/heather_martinez/. I enjoy blogging-I usually tend to write a lot- photography(not professionally) and FASHION of course! I am going to be thinking of fun little entries to post up in here. Please let me know of anything in particular you would like to see on this blog or if you have anything at all you would like me to share with everyone!

I really hope that everyone has a fantastic time this semester in the Fashion Society. Please remember to put the effort in to get what it is that you want out of this year. Volunteer, speak up, contribute, and bring your ideas because we are here to listen and try our best to help you out. This is my fourth year with the Fashion Society and I always end up doing something new every year. Well, hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See you at our next meeting this Tuesday!
