The Industry Insights Panel Series brings students and industry professionals together for students to learn about a specific area of the fashion industry from NFA Members. The NFA pulls professionals from its diverse set of members, allowing students to learn from people who are doing the cutting-edge things in the industry, therby helping students to understand what skills they need to be developing to set themselves up for success.

For this "So You Want to Run a Store" panel, students will hear from store owners representing different business models and different customers - online store curators, boutique owners, etc. There will be a moderated discussion to unearth what it's really like to run a store, and then the conversation will be opened up to students for questions. 

Panelists Include:

Josh & Ivy Elrod | Wilder and Wilder Etudes

Jessica Bower | Steluta
