I, Meghan Wideman believe that:

 The ability to communicate properly with others is
   critical in the event planning industry
 Being detail-oriented is a skill needed to succeed in
   any job
 Enthusiasm and dedication is not something that
   can be taught in a classroom
 It is important to develop business relationships
  and contacts throughout a career
In the next five years my goals are:

 To become a certified meeting planner
 To maintain membership in Meeting Professionals
 To continuously develop planning skills as they
  apply to the job
 To work my way up to becoming director of events

Apparel Design Analysis

In this class our project was to evaluated the elements and principles
of design in apparel, the two pictures shown are my evaluation of the pictures
in terms of space and repetition.
           Space ~
           Any Visual design can be defined as the
           “organization of space,” as it invites manipulation.
           The space in this dress is the empty space from the
           bust line down.
           Physical effect is that it makes her look longer.
           Psychological effect is creating rest and relief.

Repetition ~
The use of the same thing more than once,
arranged in different places. The repetition
in the garment is between the two different fabrics
going down the body.
Physical effect is emphasing the unity of the
whole garment.
Psychological effect is reassuring and bold.
Fashion Merchandising

With a group I created trend boards displaying color, silhouette,
fabrication, print and mood, for Fall 2009.

and promotional techniques.
