Part presentation, part Q&A, FIT's "Faces & Places in Fashion" lecture series is an opportunity to connect students and the public alike to the pulse of the fashion industry in an open and conversational setting.
Saraa Green is the Founder and CEO of THEBRAIDRELEASER, a new tool that keeps your hair from breaking when you take down your braids. Her deep passion for the beauty industry started as a makeup artist at MAC Cosmetics, and is backed up by her engineering and development background at companies like Shima Seiki and adidas. Her design and engineering education began at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, where she holds a bachelor's degree in Fashion Design. She went on to earn her MBA from Willamette University, and is currently a student at North Carolina State University's Doctorate of Design Program. She created the second generation "braidreleaser" after being inspired by the original 1992 design by her mother, Angela Green. Saraa runs the company's operations and business development.
