I have a business degree in Marketing and have experience with retail and merchandising. I have evolved professionally over the years and would like to get involved with production of fashion shows, photo shoots, and other fashion related events. I also have a personal interest in styling. I this point this skill has been limited to "dressing" friends and relatives or reworking their closet to enhance the options they have in their wardrobe.
I feel that I have a very mixed prospective of fashion. I appreciate street wear and have friends that work at Bodega and Karmaloop. I have a love for high fashion and the art of runway. I also understand being creative and finding deals in order to look your best. What I am really most proud of in relation to my connection to the fashion worls is being apart of HAUTE Fashion at Northeastern. I was part of a small group that noticed the void of a fashion related special interest group and helped to educate my peers on what Boston has to offer as far as the fashion world is concerned. Through this group I was also able to produce two successful fashion shows and a few photoshoots with very little resources. I also have gained corparorate experience while working at TJX in their merchandising training program for 8 months.
My name is Ayana Blue, 24 years old with a BSBA in Marketing from Northeastern. Currently, I am an Event Coordinator at Fenway Health. While at NU, I co-founded HAUTE Fashion, and I am seeking a manner to become reconnected to the fashion world.
