Fashion: Art, Entertainment, or Business?

Moderated by: Rishard Allen
Panelists: Elaine Grogan Luttrull, Judith B. Thomas, Samantha Ortiz, Jason Williams

In regions where fashion is not a major contributor to the culture or economy, many individuals and organizations across the art, entertainment, and business sectors fail to see fashion as relevant to their industries. This session is designed to explore the ways that fashion intersects with and can be more effectively integrated into each of these sectors; especially in the state of Indiana. Viewers will walk away with a broadened perspective of the fashion industry and with resources to help them to connect their fashion career across art, entertainment, and business.

A Mind to Make It

​Moderated by Elliot Carlyle
​Panelist: Anje Collins, Lionel Moïse, Suzanne McKenzie, Dr. Sequeda Sutton

This discussion is designed to provide a multi-perspective assessment of the mentality necessary to make it in the fashion industry (and in life in general). From their own personal experiences and/or professional expertise, panelists will share insights on creating and maintaining a healthy attitude while navigating the challenges, triumphs, and changes of building a career in fashion. Viewers will walk away with clarity and tools that will help them to align and/or realign themselves with their own internal power source.​
