Morgan Miller is the newest member of the COUTURE team. She was literally 2 days into her job as Account Executive when I asked her to answer questions for our blog series! Morgan joins our Show Manager Elana Cutler’s team, and she’ll be helping the sales team as they identify appropriate brands for the show and scour the globe for the best of the best in designer fine jewelry. But before she gets to that, she’s soon going to be immersed in COUTURE 2016, getting herself up to speed and (I suspect) trying to keep her wits about her. If you cross paths with Morgan at the show, kindly give her a warm welcome to our COUTURE family!
COUTURE: This will be your first time attending COUTURE as a member of the team, what are you most excited about?
Morgan Miller: I’ve been to COUTURE before (as an exhibitor) and I think the most exciting thing will be to see things from the perspective of the team; I’m really going to enjoy watching the incredible process of everything coming together. I’m also really excited to see my friends, colleagues, and the designs and their creators that I admire so much. And TV on the Radio! I love them.
COUTURE: Are you afraid of/dreading anything? If so, what?
MM: I wouldn’t so much classify it as dread or fear, probably more like nerves. As the newest team member, I need to hit the ground running, but I have a lot to learn. It’ll be good though; I like a challenge — nerves help me focus.
COUTURE: Packing strategy?
MM: I found myself either too hot or too cold last year so I would probably say layers would be a safe bet. It sounds like I’ll be doing a little more running around this year so I would imagine comfy shoes are my best friend. Yes, layers and comfy shoes. And of course, jewelry.
COUTURE: Vegas Theme Song?
MM: “Mountain at my Gates” by Foals.
COUTURE: Vegas Mantra?
MM: Double Double Animal Style.
COUTURE: What’s the craziest piece of advice about COUTURE that you’ve received so far?
MM: A wise woman once told me, “wear your tightest clothes at the beginning of the show because they won’t fit come the end.” I have a feeling this show veteran knows exactly what she’s talking about.
