Maurice: What are the keys to your success and what does one have to do to acquire the necessary skills to replicate your achievements?

Erin: The key to our success is Sarah. There is no way that I can do what I do without her. She has the answers to everything and we are always available. I rely on her and I couldn’t ask for a better partner. She is such a big support for me. She is the reason that I have made such strides in the industry. We have always had such a passion for this type of work. Sarah is the key. The best way to learn is to get your hands dirty and interning with us. You start at the bottom–volunteer— but you can work your way up. The best way to learn is by being there. I forced my way into it and be punctual, have dedication, communication and have persistence. I also made sure that I was irreplaceable.

Sarah: That’s so nice!

Maurice: What did you do before you started doing this?

Erin: I was writing. That was what I studied in college. So I was writing for a makeup company and a political website. And then I kinda saw Sarah. She was working on fashion week. And I wanted to start writing about fashion. So then I started writing for a different platform, about the shows and doing all of their press releases. And a that’s kinda like how I started working.

Sarah: Before this I was doing other types of events–5 k run walks. I worked with a nonprofit for 5 years. Then I got into event production and then I started to realize that I had a lot of strength but I realized that something was missing and I realized it was fashion so I started doing a lot fashion shows.
