Sarah Burton, Phillip Treacy, Suzy Menkes, Princess Reema & Cathy Horyn Visit The Academy of Art University

Philip Treacy & I

It’s one of those experience where you had to be there to grasp the just of the magnificence that was transpiring at that very moment. The advice they gave was heartfelt, genuine, honest and priceless. I will cherish and draw inspiration from this experience, as I continuously pursue my career and education in fashion. Philip Treacy was humble, down to earth, blunt and overflowing with wisdom and profound insight. I left feeling inspired, motivated, bursts of creativity penetrated my veins for the rest of that day.I’m very fortunate to attend the Academy of Art University. I’ve made the right decision, regarding my education. I won’t regret these student loans, I will have to pay for in the future ;). You may remember I’ve written about Jean Paul Gaultier and Cathyn Horn visiting the Academy of Art in the past.  They too have been guests of honor at The Academy of Art University. Read about them here (Every Journalist Dream Meeting Cathy Horn and Jean Paul Gaultier visits Academy of Art).
