A surprise celebrity host will introduce panelists:
Amy Tara Koch - host of the NBC-TV's Morning News weekly segment "Trend Talk" and weekly columnist for the Chicago Tribune "RedEye Stylefile", will speak about Fall 2004 trends.
Sheri Styles - With fifteen years of merchandising experience, she combines her sense of style with a strong financial background as the Specialty Jewelry Buyer for Marshall Field's. Ms. Styles will speak about creating a unique shopping experience for customers while driving profitable sales for your company.
Jennifer Van Kirk - Membership Director for the Chicago Convention and Tourism Board will speak on the topic of seasonal tourism and its positive/negative affects on area boutiques and small retailers in Chicago.

On Tuesday, May 4, 2004 CFF board members will then present "Think Big II" from 8-10am at Columbia College Chicago. This event is an open forum student breakfast held at the urban mecca's Fashion Management Department, 1006 S. Michigan Avenue, 4th Floor. This student event extends an open invitation to all fashion-design/fashion-business students from area colleges. Topics will include fashion careers and the importance of post-college networking. This second point may be of special interest to CCC students - as six of the eight current CFF board members are themselves CCC grads.

An audience question and answer segment as well as networking will follow the panel discussions at both events.

The luncheon ticket price is $45 for CFF members and $55 for non-members. Ticket prices include a three-course lunch complete with beverages and dessert.
