Naturally nurturing, Kori loves helping others and is especially passionate about assisting minorities excel within the fashion industry. Kori fell in love with art and fashion from the creativity and style of the women in her family.She has interned for IMG, BET, HONEY Magazine, as well as Baby Phat, and gained a global perspective of fashion and culture through her study abroad experiences which led her to Italy, France, England, Germany, Switzerland, as well as New York. She prays (everyday literally) to become employed as a trend/color forecaster or wardrobe stylist for a major television show or network, and plans on eventually owning her own agency that will bridge her love of theatre and fashion together.
