Description

When most people think of innovation they tend to think of an advancement in technology.

Candidate in TMD, demonstrated this to be true during the TMD 402 Lecture on Hijab fashion on social media. After immense amount of research on their topics, Jaime and Erika were able to dissect huge areas for growth within the fashion industry.
