Mentoring the Next Generation of Fashion Designers
Elissa Bloom is a powerhouse in her own right. I know her personally, as she was my director when I was a part of The Philadelphia Fashion Incubator. PFI really helped me learn more about the business side of the fashion industry and Elissa was a great mentor to myself and many of the other designers who have gone through the program. Before the PFI Elissa launched and ran her own accessories business. It was great to sit down with her and talk about all she has done and learn about what it takes to make it as a fashion designer.
