An Open Door

"Opportunity comes when you work hard and allow God to place you exactly where you need to be at the exact right time."

 

In 2017, I stumbled upon Magic City Fashion Week after a year hiatus from blogging and styling. I took time off to focus on my family and son, but when I heard that a fashion week was coming to Birmingham, I knew I had to be a part of it. 

I started as an administrative assistant for the Founders but ended up styling, backstage directing and pretty much being whatever was needed at the time. The beauty of working with this group of creatives was what I learned and gained from being a part of such a dynamic group.

Opportunity comes when you work hard and allow God to place you exactly where you need to be at the exact right time. I was at the right place at the right time and I was willing and able to work. Working with MCFW pushed me, pulled gifts out of me and opened door for me that I'm still walking into now. I remember one night after a grueling day of styling and hosting a show for Macy's I was sweeping the floor of the dressing rooms when the district coordinator for Macy's saw me and pulled me to the side. She told me she's never seen a stylist and host clean up after a show and she loved my tenacity, skill and work ethic. I was at the right place at the right time and I was willing to work. I am still working with them today because of Magic City Fashion Week. There are many stories like that but that one stood out to me the most. 

I’m excited about MCFW 2018 and with a growing team, I know we can do bigger and better things. Now, ask yourself, what can an open door and the right placement do for you? Join our team, work hard, go all out and see what God and MCFW has in store for you.

I can't wait to work with you this year.
