Fashion Thunderclap

Fashion Thunderclap is the genesis of our CEO 's journey into the fashion and entertainment world, and essentially the beginning of her career in Marketing and Editorial. Having had the same blog for 9 years since she was 15 years old, she has a strong attachment to the site.  As a teenager, she would create binders upon binders of fashion sketches and save her coins to buy a few copies of some of her favorite magazines such as Vogue, Seventeen and Harper's Bazaar. Sometimes she would record her thoughts on her blog about industry topics that she learned about through these publications. After only a few months, this very blog was used in her application portfolio for a Retail Business internship at one of the biggest names in luxury fashion department stores, Nordstrom, where she stayed for 3 years learning as much as possible about the fashion industry. In recent years, she uses this blog to chronicle her major life events such as her experiences working in telev

Icons In The Now

Before reading this publication, you must understand two things: that heroes are among us and that they don't all wear capes or super suits. While we love the action-packed blockbusters that showcase people with crazy powers and otherworldly alien finesse, and we believe that there's some truth to those fantasies as well, we see the need for society to recognize the everyday heroes that are hiding in plain sight. They are Icons and should very well be praised as such. Saving lives, Changing the World, Creating an Impact, and all with a deep backstory. All of these are characteristics of a good superhero. We're here to expose their origins, the Icons.  Are You In the Now? www.iconsinthenow.com Facebook  @iconsinthenow
