OU Career Services to host fashionable guests

Career services will host a workshop on Monday for students interested in breaking into the fashion industry.

“Careers in the Fashion Industry” will feature tips from Little Rock, AR-based Dillard’s buyers and managers on obtaining entry-level positions and developing a career path in the field.

The workshop is part of Career Services “How to Break Into” series, which highlights two to three industries each semester.

Bette Davis, OU Career Services Director, said the fashion industry workshop has been one of the most highly attended in the past, and it appeals to students from all disciplines throughout the arts and sciences college.

“Fashion’s important to (students),” she said. “They follow the trends.”

“Careers in the Fashion Industry” will be from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Monday, Feb. 23 in the Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Scholars Room.
