As Told By Calynn M. Lawrence (formerly 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 11 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 television, her many red carpet appearances at things such as Fashion Weeks in LA, Paris, New York and Chicago, and her personal journey in life!
This blog was also the ORIGINAL home to our nonprofit initiative, The Fresh Faces Project. She would post articles and interviews on her blog before expanding her reach and eventually developing a website specifically for the initiative.
This blog is a one-stop wonder for all things related to our CEO. This was what started it all!
