Hi Maria, I just want to say that I am totally impressed with all the details surrounding the FashionIncubator and the work your program has produced. I love it that your program supports up-and-coming fashion entrepreneurs and the Berkeley students. The participants really got a lot of information on what you program is all about. Thanks again for your time!
