By Noon Lobad1851 staff 

Rosemary Leger, 2016 Lasell graduate and current Editorial Assistant at Condé Nast’s Brides Magazine, returned to Lasell  Nov. 27 to speak about her experience breaking into the fashion industry as part of the Fashion Connection Club’s ongoing speaker series.

Having never been a city girl nor a fan of weddings, working for one of the country’s top bridal magazines in New York City just months after graduating was the last place Leger foreseen herself ending up. After a brief stint working in Public Relations and a few other positions that helped her find her footing in the industry, Leger landed a position as a Fashion Assistant at Brides Magazine in the fall of 2016.

Spend a day at the MFA 1

By Rosemary Leger – Managing Editor

Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts houses brilliant pieces from all disciplines, from all over the world. A day at the MFA is a day well spent, either alone or accompanied, and with a Boston-area college I.D., admission is free (out of town I.D.’s give a discount).

The variety of galleries are ever-changing and there are exhibit for all interests. Recently, the museum acquired its first Frida Kahlo painting, “Dos Mujeres,” and is drawing crowds to a visiting collection of Picasso’s creations.
