It is 1 hour before the FIDM Alumni panel here at Makercity. I am honored that I was chosen as one of the panelist to speak about business and the world of fashion. My years at FIDM, the most difficult years of my life (due to my full time work & full time school schedule) are coming full circle. My education, experience and expertise are being highlighted during the panel discussion due to the business I have created called HEMMENS.
I’m not nervous, more excited I would say, to share my experiences with my fellow peers and aspiring business owners. I have had help every step of the way and so many people that have trusted me, believed in me and still do!

The panel event went fantastic! I met so many audience members who are interested in starting or building up their fashion business. I hope that my words have helped in some way clarify some of the steps and options they have available to them as they head down the road of entrepreneurship!
Here are some pictures of the event, special thanks to @MakerCityLA for hosting and inviting me to join the panel. Also, to the one and only Bill Cliatt @FIDMALUMNI for mediating the event and being such a supportive advisor. It was a pleasure to share the stage with @rachaeldickhute and Rebecca Eliason. @NatalieHemmens #thebusinessoffashion #theatelier #HEMMENS
