Fashion and entrepreneurship combine

The Fashion Student Organization is pairing with the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization to host a speaking event highlighting local fashion entrepreneurs.

The member-only event will be held in Rockwell Auditorium Nov. 2, from 7-8 p.m.

This event marks the first time the FSO has collaborated with another on-campus organization. The featured speakers, Stephanie Fralick, designer and owner of Pinky’s Daily Planner in Tremont, and Fadia Nemeh, owner of Mademoiselle in Crocker Park in Westlake, will be discussing entrepreneurship in the fashion industry.

Hannah Gates, president of the FSO, expects a large turnout at the event because it touches on a topic that is normally overlooked.

“We’re hoping this event will be able to speak to our members that have an entrepreneurial interest,” Gates said. “We always talk with everyone about design, merchandising and all other aspects of the fashion industry, but we don’t usually touch on entrepreneurship.”
