Turks and Caicos Islands international designer and photographer Kazz Forbes of Saint George Fashion House (SGFH) returned to high school to share a little fashion savvy with aspiring students.
Forbes, who recently ran an eight-week after-school fashion club at the Edward C. Gartland Youth Center in Providenciales, spoke to about three hundred students of the Clement Howell High School in Turks and Caicos on careers in the fashion industry.
The annual career day is an attempt to guide students to making informed career choices. Accomplished executives from various industries are invited to share insider knowledge and tips for career success.
“It was indeed an honor and a privilege to speak to the students, providing knowledge on what is fashion, [what] careers in fashion [entail] and encouraging them to set goals and to follow their dreams,” said Forbes.
“It took about six minutes to get the students settled as they were screaming and cheering me on as I made my way to the podium to speak,” said Forbes. “That spirit … motivates me to continue following my dreams and is indeed a signal of excitement and eagerness within that body of students to endeavor to be a success.”
