Brianna Sanchez ’24 Selected for University of New York Fashion Week 


Brianna Sanchez ’24 will represent the TCU Department of Fashion Merchandising at this year’s University of New York Fashion Week (UNYFW). The event is offered to students around the country studying fashion at colleges and universities affiliated with the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC). CLC collaborates with Endeavor Fashion Events to provide future leaders in the fashion industry with opportunities to interact with and learn from professionals who understand what it takes to be successful.

Being chosen as the TCU representative felt like a dream come true,” said Sanchez. “I felt that my professors believed in me to represent not only the Department of Fashion Merchandising but TCU as a whole.” 

Sanchez is a member of the TCU Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority, Inc., the Multicultural Greek Council Executive Board and the United Latinx Association. She uses the skills learned from her campus involvement and fashion merchandising courses to assist local organizations, including creating t-shirt tote bags for Under the Bridge Ministries. Sanchez is excited to attend UNYFW to network with industry professionals and further develop her skills to continue serving the community.

What made you pursue a career in fashion merchandising?
I have always been interested in business relations; however, I wanted to expand into a more versatile area. My aunt is involved in the fashion business, but it was not until deciding what college to attend that I asked about her career. I enjoyed learning about her passion and the amazing experiences she earned and knew it was the right fit for me. After researching the TCU Fashion Merchandising program and what sets them apart from other schools, I submitted my application and was accepted.

What advice would you give to other Department of Fashion Merchandising students?
Always get involved, whether it’s within your major or around campus! Make connections with your professors and peers because you never know what opportunities will come along the way. Do your own thing, ask for help when needed, and never lose sight of your career goals.

What’s next for you?
I will study abroad in Madrid, Spain, this summer and have accepted a position at Kendra Scott to serve as a retail stylist! I will serve as a student representative on the College of Fine Arts Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee for the next academic year. I cannot wait to serve my community and promote art programs that align with and support TCU’s mission.
