After Office Hours with Rochelle Behrens, Founder of The Shirt
April 3 • 7 - 9pm
Calling all aspiring entrepreneurs, leaders, fashion lovers, dreamers and risk takers...We have a night planned for you that will leave you inspired and energized to go after your goals.
Join us for an in person office hours with Rochelle Behrens, founder of The Shirt. Rochelle will be joining us for an intimate discussion around her career path and entrepreneurial journey. Our conversation will be led by Local Levo DC Leader Courtnay Davis, but much of the floor will be opened to YOU. You will have the chance to ask Rochelle your burning questions and understand what it takes to change careers and to build an incredible brand.
Oh and did we mention The Shirt will be hosting a trunk show with all their favorites from their Spring line!?
And here's more on Rochelle, straight from her:
I started my career as a lobbyist in Washington, DC – ground zero for button downs – and quickly noticed that my go-to shirts for work always always gaped open at the bust. Tired of fighting “The Gape” with safety pins, I patented my No Gape Button TechnologyTM, now seamlessly designed into The Shirt, and began production in NYC. The Shirt was soon discovered by The Today Show and then The Oprah Winfrey Show and she named it her “Must-Have Fashion Item of the Year."
I launched the company with one product (The Shirt) and one employee (yours truly.) Since then, the company has expanded dramatically, and we’re now distributed in boutiques across North America and proudly through our online flagship. I love that The Shirt empowers women by making them feel polished, strong and confident – I won’t stop until every woman has the Shirt in her closet!
