Bree, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?

My career and interest in fashion basically started when I was growing up, always watching shows from HGTV to America’s Next Top Model. I was always so into the arts, especially fashion! I was always involved in dance, signing, music, sewing classes, art classes, etc. YOU NAME IT, I probably did it. As high school came around and senior year rolled up within a blink of an eye, it was time to start applying to schools. My original plan with my parents was to go to a community college and save some money, I, of course, had a different idea. I actually only applied to one school, just out of curiosity to see what would happen. After a few months later, I received an academic scholarship that was hard to pass up from Columbia College Chicago.
