Tricia loved every second of her trip, so picking which of her favorites to share with you was one hard task. She met many people and companies from various aspects of the industry and got an in-depth look at the fashion world from a personal point of view. "The trip was so inspirational, even though it was geared to the students and meant to inspire them, it was such an exhilarating experience it even inspired every adult in the room. Being that close to such influential people in the industry is a pinch me moment. I could hardly believe everything was actually happening," Tricia said.
Tricia met Carlos Falchi, the designer between the infamous luxury handbag brand and the designer who often creates bags to compliment high end fashion lines. The friendly man was welcoming and so excited to have the students and teachers.

Another one of Tricia's favorite experiences was meeting Jenna Lyons, the Creative Director of J. Crew. That's right....J. Crew. With Lyons were the designers and graphic designers of the classic company. Tricia loved this because, "It was like meeting the brains who dress America. It was so amazing. Even their offices sparkled with creativity. Such a once in a lifetime opportunity."
