Storypreneur | Storytelling in Fashion
Before there was Shark Week, there was Fashion Week. Even if you don’t know a Donatella Versace from a Donna Karan, if you live in the Greater New York City area, it’s tough not to know when Fashion Week is upon us. BTW, it begins this Thursday. In honor of Fashion Week, I googled storytelling and fashion to see if designers saw storytelling as a key part of their creations.
Not surprisingly, many do. So, yes, storytelling is in fashion, figuratively and literally. I did a little more digging. I googled biggest fashion designers 2018 to get a cursory, surface-deep lay of the fashion landscape. I couldn’t help but notice several surnames that I recognized but in other distinct contexts. All of which led me to ask: how do you know if you’re a bona fide Fashionista?
Well, taking a page from comic, Jeff Foxworthy, I came up with You Might Be A Fashionista If…
When you hear the last name McCartney and think Stella and not Paul, you might be a Fashionista. When you hear the last name McQueen and you think Alexander and not Steve, you might be a Fashionista. When you hear the last name Ford and you think Tom and not Henry, John, or Gerald, you might be a fashionista. I’m sure there are plenty more examples, please send them my way if you think of them! Fashion, Procurement, Millennial Retention, it’s on here in Issue #18 of Storypreneur.

Storytelling + Fashion
Storytelling + Procurement
Procurement Pros: Level Up These Skills to Boost Strategy
Training+ Millennial Retention
As you’ll see in Larry Kim’s piece above, a large portion of today’s workforce (so-called Millennials) are eager and hunger for high-quality, professional development in the workplace. If the quality isn’t there or accessibility is lacking, some may look elsewhere and move on. Of course, one key area of training that will help Millennials is business storytelling. I’m especially thinking of those in mid-level management who want to get promoted but are passed over – a major pain point!
