It’s been an exciting few months with the Boy Meets Girl® S/S 2015 Collection launching on Nordstrom.com and in Nordstrom stores. Just when I didn’t think I could be any more excited, I was asked to speak to the April BP Fashion Board meeting at the Nordstrom at Roosevelt Field Mall. This opportunity gave me the chance to speak with high school students who had a passion for fashion AND share my excitement about the new pieces being sold at Nordstrom.
The meeting started with the incredible board members presenting their designs and marketing plans for a new clothing line they were working on as part of their program. Of course I LOVED their presentations and getting to ask them questions about their inspirations (role reversal). Then I spoke about my educational background, creating Boy Meets Girl® and what goes into marketing, pricing (which I explained is very important), and advertising a fashion line. Then they asked me about working with musicians, what goes into planning a New York Fashion Week show and our recent partnership with Nordstrom and balancing my life with an amazing baby boy :)
It was a true pleasure meeting these budding entrepreneurs. Thank you Nordstrom for having me part of your educational initiatives. I look forward to continuing to work with you and meeting more BP fashion board girls across the country.

Introducing our May ‘15 Muse of the Month, Katie!
Meet Katie Cole our May muse of the month. Born in Australia, Katie currently lives in Nashville where she is touring and recording. Katie just put out a record called, Lay It All Down. She has shared the stage with Billy Corgan and her voice has appeared on a a record for Scarlett Johansson+ Dean Martin, Carlene Carter and Glen Campbell’s last two albums. Just like me Katie likes to eat healthy, but also likes french fries from time to time. I asked Katie cats or dogs? She said, "I am definitely a cat person." Unfortunately that is where we differ ...I used to love cats until I got allergic to my own so I am definitely a dog person (which I also had growing up). I love featuring artists on the rise. Katie is unique an works very hard. She is dedicated to her craft.

Susan G. Komen cancer foundation. I’ve supported them since I’ve been in America. In 2013 I did a multi-city Pinktober (October is breast cancer awareness month) Tour of various Hard Rock Cafe venues. All proceeds went to Susan G. Komen. I also donated all the profits of my 2014 Breast cancer awareness month single “Shout” to the foundation. My Mum suffered and survived Breast Cancer last year, so raising awareness and funds to help find a cure is important to me.
3. Favorite Boy Meets Girl® and why
For the longest time I was completely obsessed with the Alice tee, but right now I can’t go without the Coco Hoodie and my Boy Meets Girl tights. The tights are super cute and playful. And I can’t say enough great things about the hoodie. I literally wear it all the time. It’s so stylish and comfortable. The perfect balance for a musician on the road or on the go in the studio. I get a lot of compliments on it.
Who is your muse or the person who inspires you most? Could be anyone! If you would like to be considered for Boy Meets Girl®'s Muse of the Month see the rules here!
