If there’s one item I almost never leave home without, it’s a backpack. If you’ve followed me on Scout Sixteen or kept up with me on social media, you know this to be true. I’m always on-the-go – either rushing between meetings in New York City or trekking between terminals across the globe – so any accessory that can keep my hands free is an automatic ‘yes’ for me. It’s like having the best sidekick ever… they’re always along for the journey!
With that said, it comes as no surprise that I was stoked to partner with Backpacks.com to celebrate the launch of their fantastic new site and I even got to pen a piece discussing a time when a backpack was more than just an accessory – which’ll go live soon. I dive into my first fashion industry job… so if you’re keen to get a glimpse inside that world, go check it out!
