Michelle Gibson



*Currently seeking an opportunity as a Marketing Assistant in the Washington D.C. Metro Area.*

As the former Marketing & Communications Director of the Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce, I gained knowledge in managing a team, developing customer relationship management initiatives, designing brand identity packages, updating website and social media content, and composing monthly newsletters. 

During my years at Howard University, I also founded the eco-conscious contemporary womenswear brand Simply L3ve (www.simplyl3ve.com) , where I currently function as the Owner and Designer and utilize my skills to set creative direction seasonally, increase revenue, build customer loyalty, transform the label into a lifestyle brand, and prepare collections seasonally for presentations including New York Fashion Week, DC Fashion Week, and Macy’s Local Designer Showcase. Additional internship and work experiences in the past year include working as a Brand Ambassador for HGTV HOME, working as a Fashion Design Instructor for the DC Fashion Foundation, and interning as a Wholesale Field Merchandising Intern for PVH Corp.’s client Calvin Klein. 

My education, entrepreneurial, and internship experiences have been invaluable assets to my career development as I strive to pursue a career in Brand Management. I would very much like the opportunity to discuss my experiences further with you.
