“I launched my own website that sells young women’s contemporary clothing. I’ve always wanted to open my own store and I just got tired of waiting.”
Hometown: Baytown, TX
Internships: Gucci, Ermenegildo Zegna, Starlight Accessories
Career Goal: I plan to keep my online store, www.essandtellie.com, running until I graduate, then I hope to open a brick-and-mortar boutique. If my plan takes longer than expected, then I would like to become a buyer for a department store.
Why LIM: The small “family” atmosphere really appealed to me. The fact that it’s located in the heart of Manhattan and the students are offered so many opportunities was a huge factor as well.
