Brittany graduated college with a BFA in Fashion Design & Visual Merchandising. I’ve spent the past 7 years working directly in the fashion industry starting as a stylist, then moving to visual merchandiser, to retail manager, to the current profession of fashion buyer. I’ve modeled for fashion shows, media, tv, and magazines to view fashion from the opposite perspective of the designer. “For the past 3 years I have been the Metro Detroit blogger behind my blog, Bedazzled Britt. I’ve covered everything from store openings, to fashion shows, concerts, local events, the North American International Auto Show, you name it! I I write about whatever inspires me in that moment, but I love supporting local fashion most of all. My end goal is to become a well-respected Michigan made fashion designer!” Brittany can be followed on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @bedazzledbritt.
