Hi everyone, my name is Ali Cerasuolo. I am a senior here at URI and am set to graduate this May, woo hoo! I major in Textile, Merchandising and Design as well as minor in Public Relations. My interests in TMD are more in the mix of PR and fashion. I really enjoy what I have studied about TMD within the past four years and am most interested in visual merchandising and styling. I am also very interested in the PR side of things. I would ideally like to work at a Fashion PR company once I graduate. This would be perfect for me as it combines the two things that I love.
I hope that this class gives me a deeper and non-traditional way to think about fashion. I want to get of the core of the word fashion and see what types of events, people, places, things influence this world. As a result of this deeper meaning, I can think about the way I do my future job in a better way. I want to be able to see things differently and not take such old and boring approaches to problems.
