Student gains valuable insight through Trend Tribe

Many girls are looking for experience in the fashion industry and fail to find a place where they can learn the skills they need to get a job.

Trend Tribe has personally helped me solve that problem.

Trend Tribe is an accessories company aimed at selling the latest jewelry trends for a college budget.

No matter what you need to accessorize, Trend Tribe has a piece for the occasion.

Whether it’s an interview, a formal or an everywhere piece to wear to class, Trend Tribe has it all.

Each month Trend Tribe launches a new collection of the latest trends and a majority of the jewelry is less than $20.

But beyond the jewelry products, Trend Tribe also provides a career launching point for students interested in the industry.

Trend Tribe’s team of campus ambassadors, better known as Trendsetters, host trunk shows on campus to gain first-hand experience in the fashion industry, while also giving back.

Portions of the trunk show sales are then donated to a philanthropy that the Trendsetter gets to choose.

Within the first 30 days of becoming a Trendsetter, I learned skills in marketing, public relations, branding and more.

These skills are so essential in the fashion industry today, Trend Tribe Founder and CEO, Samantha Cooper, aimed to teach them to the Trendsetters through practice.

Samantha Cooper launched her own jewelry company after her freshman year of college when she struggled to find an internship.

That summer, she designed and sold her own jewelry, launching her own business.

The following summer, Cooper had entrepreneurial experience and impressive skills to show employers as a result of her business experience.

In fact, as a result of her venture, she landed her dream summer internship at Barneys New York.

Now the fearless leader of Trend Tribe, Samantha Cooper encourages young women to gain the experience, as she did, through Trend Tribe.

However, this isn’t just another campus ambassador program.

Samantha Cooper personally keeps in close contact with each of her Trendsetters.

Needless to say, having a fashion company CEO as a part of my network has been a greatcomfort to me as a student hoping to work in the industry in the near future.

I joined Trend Tribe over the summer as a Trendsetter for the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

What’s great about working for this company is the opportunities don’t stop at becoming an ambassador.

After further discussing my obligations as a Trendsetter with the leadership team, I later became the public relations intern for the company.

I would recommend trying to get involved with the company to anyone with any interest in the fashion industry.

It’s taught me many valuable lessons through experience that I could never have gotten from a classroom.
