A friend of mine forwarded me an email about this event a couple of weeks ago. I registered,but the day of the event, last week, I was feeling on the fence about going. As you can see from the pictures, I decided to go and I'm glad that I did.
June Ambrose is a celebrity stylist/designer who began her career with rap video producer/director,Hype Williams back in the early 90's. Her current clients include: Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, Jay-Z, Missy Elliott and Zoe Saldana. Here is link to a Huffington Post article about her from last year.

It was a really good talk. June had lots of good stories to tell and tons of advice and information for fashion veterans and people just getting into the industry. I really appreciate when people like June Ambrose share their experiences. I felt really inspired and ready to put forth more time and energy into shaping and building my brand...whatever I decide it is. I will be working on it full time this year!
