She along with other designers and industry influencers had a 30-minute session with the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, iconic supermodel Naomi Campbell and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. She and other participants got to share their thoughts on the future of fashion and how to tap into opportunities.
