With over 20 years experience in the fashion and beauty industry Beth has been an executive for some of the biggest designers of our time including Ralph Lauren and Chanel. Beth was inspired to follow her passion in the field of fashion when she was just a freshman in college at the University of Arizona. Melinda Burke, her mentor of 30 years, is now the Vice President of the University of Arizona. “Melinda has been an amazing partner in helping me broaden my career through the years.”
Beth herself has been a mentor to students from the University of Arizona, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and the Fashion Institute of Technology. Her most recent intern was placed at Vogue in their special events division. Also a guest speaker at the United States Air Force Academy Beth has helped to educate officers of many years to acclimate to civilian life and even worked with the pilot of Air Force One.
Beth hosted her own radio show in Phoenix titled Fashion Exclusive with Beth Stern. The show was in honor of her mother who passed away from cancer. Beth had one rule on the show and that was that every guest provide a non profit organization to feature in an upcoming episode. Grace Azria from BCBG was a guest on the show proudly promoting Habitat for Humanity.
With a flair for fashion, technology and social media, Beth enjoys building emerging brands and was the Director of Marketing for Ask Your Stylist which was a cool new concept out of NYC.
