Meet Stephanie, KIDBOX Director of Merchandising and mother to Julian (19 months )
Explain your role at KIDBOX and what you do!
I am the Director of Merchandising and currently I oversee all buying as well as brand relations & development.
When did you become interested in working in Fashion?
Some of my earliest memories involve fashion in some way! From the time I was a young girl, I was sketching designs and constantly looking for ways to accessorize my things in new ways to update my look. While I loved this as a hobby, it wasn’t until I took a job with The Limited during college that I realized I could hold a position that would not only offer me the creative outlet that I craved, but also allow me to utilize my analytical skill set as well. I changed my major to Business during my Sophomore year and the rest is history!
What is your favorite part about working at KIDBOX?
I love being apart of something that is changing the way people shop while simultaneously helping those in need. Every decision we make could have a positive impact on the greater good and I love that!
What was your dream job when you were a kid?
I was torn between wanting to be a fashion designer or a lawyer.
