Permanent link  Midwinter Meeting Fashion Workshop focuses on personal brands

12/11/2014

Midwinter Meeting Special Events are an integral part of the annual program. Friday night concerts, Opening Session speakers, and elegant Dinner Dances enable participants to unwind after long days of learning, whether in the classroom or on the exhibit floor.

New this year will be the Friday afternoon Fashion Workshop and Luncheon, featuring Amy Salinger. Titled “Brand Yourself with Sass and Style,” Ms. Salinger’s program will offer participants — both male and female — ways to make use of their existing wardrobes, combined with a few budget-friendly additions, to flatter their body types and express their personal brands.

“In a competitive world, it’s a challenge for professionals to differentiate themselves from others in the marketplace,” said Susan Doroshow, who will serve as CDS president in 2015. “None of us ever knows when we might run into a patient or meet a potential referral source. A consistent visual image and strong sense of style - in other words, a personal brand - is one way that a dentist can pull away from the pack.  When you look your best, you feel more confident - and that confidence can translate into greater practice success and personal satisfaction.”

Ms. Salinger is the perfect stylista to lead the workshop, with experience working on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and TLC’s What Not to Wear and The Makeover Story. She’s also appeared on The Today Show, MTV, the Lifetime Series “Million Dollar Shoppers, and Sirius Radio’s Living with Martha Stewart; she’s been featured in the New York Times, People Style Watch, InStyle, Real Simple, The Wall Street Journal, and Life and Style.

The Midwinter Meeting-exclusive Fashion Workshop at McCormick Place includes time for lunch, the program, and a question-and-answer session with Ms. Salinger. Participants will also receive a booklet filled with style tips and advice for quick reference at home.

While runway fashion shows offer attendees a fantasy experience, Dr. Doroshow said, Ms. Salinger will give workshop participants a sense of how fashion fits into and enhances the real lives of working professionals.

“Amy Salinger believes that personal style is within everyone’s reach and budget,” Dr. Doroshow said. “The men and women who attend our program will walk away with the tools to take their wardrobes to the next level, using what’s already in our closets and without breaking the bank.”

Register to attend the Fashion Workshop when you register for other Midwinter Meeting courses and Special Events, using code SE2.
