Do u speak uh-hay?!!?

February 16, 2010

There are many languages you need to learn to be in the fashion biz.  English is not one of them.

First I can speak “businesseze”.  I can throw around terms like “key deliverable”, “gross margin” and “push/pull strategy” better than many CEOs.

Next there is learning to speak for social media.  It is hysterical when you run your releases through the Goobledygook Grader.  For example, my blog yesterday got a 97%.  Just missed that 100%, because apparently “buzz” (as in buzzkill) is an overused word that lacks meaning.  Don’t think I want to mention THAT to Buzzkill.

And of course, I’m learning to speak “fashionista”:  ligne, marker, oeal, plotter, etc

So when people ask how many languages I speak, I can confidently say 4.  Oh, I forgot Pig Latin — make that 5!

Have a appy-hay ay-day!
