Were you interested in fashion and style in high school? If not, when did you get the fashion bug?
Yes, always! I was known as the “Guess Girl” at school. But really, I’ve always loved fashion ever since I was young girl. At 16, I was hired at Atrium, New York’s go-to spot for contemporary men’s clothing. It was there that I learned the ins-and-outs of menswear from one of the most notable men in the retail space, Sam Ben-Avraham, who went on to become my mentor and now business partner at Liberty Fairs.
Did you go to college or attend any training out of high school? If so, what did you study?
I attended Johnson and Whales for a year to study fashion and merchandising, and Wood Tobé-Coburn to finish my degree.
What do you currently do for work?
I am the co-founder of Liberty Fairs, a menswear fashion and lifestyle trade show that takes place in New York, Las Vegas and Florence, Italy.
