Anne Woods is a big proponent of language where she teaches. When she interviewed for her first job as a fashion copywriter, the manager had also graduated with a language degree and hired her because she had studied abroad and spoke a second language fluently. She's traveled all over the world picking out trends and garments to present to global companies who make fabrics and apparel. In Germany and Switzerland, she presented trends in German. Her degree in German encouraged her to learn from other cultures, seek what is new and always be open to new places, people and adventures. Over the years, Ms. Wood has been a Fashion Director at organizations such as Saks Department Store Group, Lane Bryant, and Cato Corporation.
