Jennifer “Big Deal” Dawson is on the Board of Fashion Group International Toronto with me and she is just the sweetest person you could hope to meet! Jennifer’s role at FGI is member relations- meeting new members or potential members at our events and getting to know them while representing FGI. If you’re interested in making some great connections with a supportive and friendly bunch of dedicated fashion professionals (and creative professionals from related industries) come check out one of our events that happen the last Tuesday of every month, and find the lovely Jennifer Dawson to ask her about what membership has to offer!

What’s a typical day like for you? It always differs, but I try to start my day with a morning run to get my energy flowing. From there my days are usually filled with client meetings, lunches, work, and various fashion events in the evenings. I never have a boring day which is why I LOVE Toronto because there is never a dull moment in this electrifying city.
What in your life is really important to you? Family. I am the eldest of six children and have a very loving relationship with my 3 brothers and 2 sisters. They mean the world to me.
What would you like to be remembered for? I would always like to be remembered as the girl who made all of her wildest dreams come true. I live my life to the fullest and truly believe that anything is possible.
What role does fashion play in your life? This upcoming fall I will be teaching with the Fashion Faculty at Seneca College so I always need to be in tune with the latest fashion trends. In addition, I sit on the Board of Directors with Fashion Group International and I am always looking for new members. Fashion is a way for me to express myself and I always tend to dress in vintage fashion because I love the idea of time traveling to different eras.
