When is the last time you curled up on the couch with a good annual report? There is much to be learned….always so much to be learned.
Whereas: the time is 3:22 AM
Whereas: we have to be in class by 11:00 AM
Let it be therefore proclaimed that “this post will be short”.
For FSHD 2343 – Chicos uses independent vendors for designs and for private label; and FSHN 2305 – Chicos annual report details loads of info that relates to what you are learning (targeting the customer, average selling square footage, “current macroeconomic and other business conditions” strategies) and much, much more.
Read the report…. you might want to browse it (you know, 76 big pages) and you still need to make time for Charlie the Cat’s latest “glog” on Halloween costumes. http://www1.fredflare.com/blog/?p=4576

Not only did their London appearance put Belgium on the fashion map, it also positioned the Antwerp Academy, as it is known colloquially, as one of the world’s top fashion schools.”
Really, get some sleep!
