Have an interview coming up? Getting ready for your summer internship? Or, already prepping for recruitment season in the fall? Then, join us on the evening of Tuesday, April 25th for an interactive workshop designed to help you build your professional wardrobe.
Professional stylists and wardrobe consultants Eric Deck (Founder/Director of SmartlyDressed) and Lo Pranger (Founder of Lo Maintenance) will cover why dressing well on an interview matters, break down how to assess the quality & fit of garments, and include an opportunity to build outfits for your interview, internship, or job. They will focus on how to build a wardrobe on any budget and will point to places to shop for clothes at various price points.
Eric and Lo will cover businesswear for students who are considering formal industries like banking or consulting, as well as touch on how to dress appropriately in casual work environments such as tech or non-profit.
Note: This workshop is exclusively for Stanford students. Separate sessions will cover womenswear and menswear, as generally defined by the fashion industry. We encourage students of all genders and identities to sign up for either.
