Actually MAG's "Your First Move In The Fashion Industry" talk, Wed 5 Sept 2012.

Paul Khor, owner of the cool Actually stores, was getting so many questions from aspiring fashion students that he decided to get a group of professionals together from across the Singaporean fashion industry and do an hour of Q&A at Butter Factory, who kindly sponsored the space for the event.

Here was the line up of speakers. From left to right:
Pei Zhen Chong, Marketing Manager at Clout Shoppe.
Patricia Lee, Snr Fashion Writer at FEMALE magazine.
Cary Cheng, Fashion Sales and PR at Glamour Inc showroom.
Jimmy Lim, Regional Marketing Snr Manager for GAP and BANANA REPUBLIC at FJ Benjamin Lifestyle.
Nazry Zakaria, Visual Merchandiser at Club Monaco.
Me :)
Pang Ai Mei, designer with her own label, Mae Pang, from the Parco Next Next fashion incubator.

It was great that professionals were able to share their knowledge and expertise with a large group of people who were aspiring to work in the fashion industry. I know that if I was a fashion student, I'd love to attend something like this too! I think Paul might organize another one of these events in future!

The speakers didn't get much time to speak with each other during the event so we're meeting up for dinner and drinks and ask one another questions instead! :)
