Love my daughter. Love how her little mind is constantly working and looking for new and challenging ways to be creative. I do not ever want to impede her from her brilliance, yet, the mess and clean up is a bit much for me to take at times. Admittedly, I have to work at being more laid back about these things. Over the years, I have allowed her to make her own fashion choices, choosing my arguments wisely. I overlook the puddles of glue, the shreds of fabric and the remastering of a tote or backpack. I have even played DJ for the many fashions shows my son and I have been willing audience participants. However, once summer has set in and boredom has become full blown, I can only handle so much. After researching an article for the Desert Companion (One Campy Summer) about Las Vegas summer camps, I came across this fascinating opportunity for my daughter- Fashion Camp LV.
Erin began her career dressing and styling fashion shows. She then worked at LA’s StylePR before heading to San Francisco to head up marketing for Karen Neuburger Ltd. – a $60 million sleepwear company, made famous by its multiple Oprah Winfrey Show appearances. Her PR efforts led to appearances by the designer/company namesake on The View and Good Morning America as well as product appearances on TV and Film. In 2002, Erin joined Bloomingdale’s as Public Relations Manager. In her 9-year tenure there, she executed 200+ events per year, including charity functions, fashion shows and designer personal appearances. Today Erin is a partner in A+B Group, a PR & Event Planning Firm specializing in Fashion, Retail & Lifestyle. Additionally, Erin teaches two courses in Fashion at Orange Coast College, and has developed Lady Mardo’s Fashion Trivia, an iPhone application which sold over 1,000 copies in it’s first year.
I just found it so remarkable that something like this was within the city limits of Las Vegas. A very cool, unique opportunity for those with a panache for style and a flair for fashion. Erin has offered Stella the chance to partake in a week of Summer Camp at Fashion Camp Las Vegas in exchange for a review on the classes. I am looking forward to sharing mine and Stella’s thoughts on the experience!
