I joined the BP. Fashion Board when I was a sophomore in high school. I had always loved fashion, and I obviously love Nordstrom, so I thought it was a perfect fit. Since I’ve completed almost two years on the Fashion Board I thought I’d share what a typical meeting is like.
This is the whole Fashion Board for my region at our holiday party in December. At most meetings there are typically around 25-30 members and the manager of the BP. department. I’ve gotten to know a lot of these lovely ladies and have made a few new friends who love fashion just as much as I do.
Each meeting is different and we cover a new topic each time we meet. We’ve had guest speakers from companies like Me to We, who come and talk to us about their jobs in the fashion industry. Sometimes we have more hands-on challenges, such as dressing mannequins as a way to learn about visual merchandising. Another thing the Fashion Board does is discuss trends we love and clothes we’d love to see in BP. The manager takes notes on the trends we’re liking and sends them to Nordstrom buyers so they know exactly what their customers want.
If you’ve already applied, I’m so excited for you to experience Fashion Board for yourself! You’re going to have a blast learning about fashion while surrounded by people who love it just as much as you do. 🙂
