Luxury Designer Headlines WithIt Education Breakfast
WithIt, the women's leadership development network for the home and furnishings industries, will host luxury interior designer Michelle Workman of Michelle Workman Interiors, as the guest speaker for the organization's biannual High Point Market Educational Breakfast. This event is sponsored by Myriad Software and will be held Sunday, April 7 from 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. in the IHFC ballroom.
Jana Platina-Phipps, aka The Trim Queen, will be the moderator for a fun and open conversation about life choices, advancing business, and video marketing.
Michelle Workman will talk about work/life balance, pivoting through change, and reinvention. Learn how her move from L.A. to Chattanooga has both challenged and enhanced her business, why she self-produced the series "Glamour Goes South" documenting her journey, and what opportunities lie ahead.
Michelle Workman is one of America's most sought-after interior designers, with high-end residential and commercial projects spanning from the West Coast to the East Coast.
Touted as "Showbiz Royalty" by Variety magazine, Michelle possesses an esteemed and influential client roster, from the Hollywood elite (Jennifer Lopez, John Travolta, and Topher Grace, to name a few) and Silicon Valley executives, to Manhattan philanthropists; anyone who desires elegant and glamorous trend-setting interior design. Her designs and product licensing for various product categories are reflective of her style that she describes as "exuberant elegance" which includes furniture, bespoke trims, fringes and tapes, and a soon-to-be released wallpaper collection.
The ticketed event is open to WithIt members and to High Point Market attendees. Ticket prices are $25 for members and $35 for guests and includes a hot breakfast buffet and networking. Seats are reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis at www.withit.org.
WithIt will also host an industry networking event on Friday evening, April 5 in the Palliser showroom on the 4th floor of 220Elm. The event is free and all current and prospective members are welcome to join.
