Caroline Issa: The Ultimate Fashion #GirlBoss
A Journey Through Chief Executive and Fashion Director Caroline Issa’s Career
Caroline Issa is the definition of #girlboss. The Canadian-born, London-based Chief Executive and Fashion Director of Tank Magazine has had an illustrious career and continues to redefine the business of fashion. She was a model in Milan, but went to study business at University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business grad (we’ll forgive her for that), and then did management consulting at Marakon. Caroline Issa started a career in business before ending up in the fashion editorial industry “to be in a position where [she] could have a say, make a decision.” After her time as a consultant, she moved to London and met Masoud Golsorkhi, founder of Tank Magazine. She invested her own personal savings into the magazine and has been its Fashion Director ever since. In her desire to bridge industries, Caroline Issa launched BecauseLondon.com, a digital magazine described as “glamorous dim sum” that joins together editorial and commerce. And she created Fashion Scan – technology to unlock digital content within physical magazine pages using smartphones and tablets. Today, she is known not only for business acumen or her gorgeous mixed Chinese, Lebanese, and Iranian looks, but also her talent for transforming her own personal style and making it available to the public through partnerships with LK Bennett, J Crew, and most recently, Nordstrom.
Basically, we, at GRLA, are fangirling over her hard and cannot wait to hear what she has to say when she comes to campus on Friday, November 6th. See our Facebook event page for more details.
