How I can help you

With more that 40 years experience in the fashion industry, I bring to all mentoring sessions current and important branding and marketing strategies across many platforms. My experience covers the apparel industry in many forms, both retail and wholesale, and includes branding, repositioning a brand, marketing and merchandising and conceptualizing your brand.....getting down to its DNA. I am currently a professor of business and marketing at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City as well as the co-owner of a marketing/branding/business building consulting company, incubator1. My clients include both retailers and wholesalers in apparel. And in the past I have worked within the home decor and food service businesses. Having worked for major department and specialty stores, full price and off price, and having had my own retail store and an ecommerce site I bring to all mentoring sessions a unique perspective. The hours I mentor at SCORE are Thursdays 10 - 2 and Mondays 1 - 4 at 26 Federal Plaza. (CURRENTLY ALL VIA ZOOM ONLY ) Because of the very nature of the fashion industry I only mentor in the face to face environment (CURRENTLY ALL VIA ZOOM ONLY) I find all other forms counter producstive with my fashion clients. All new or first time clients must book their initial appointment using the SCORE on line calendar (CURRENTLY THE ZOOM CALENDAR) which is updated on a regular basis with my available hours, Unfortunately, all mentoring sessions must take place during these two days! I look forward to meeting you all so please feel free to go the the SCORE on line calendar and find a day and time convenient to your schedule and book an appointment so I can hopefully set you on the path of a successful fashion business or home or food.
