Cher Park — Cornell University

Cher Park — Cornell University

LA native Cher Park never thought she’d be running a fashion brand when she started her career on Wall Street in 2005. She had graduated from Cornell University and followed her peers to New York City where she had been recruited into the investment banking program at Lehman Brothers. She left banking for a more fulfilling career and finally decided that fashion was her destiny. She landed a strategy position at Forever 21 where she worked across various departments trying to solve a myriad of operational problems, one of which was optimizing the Forever 21 website.  It was on that project that she fell in love with e-commerce: the combination of technology and fashion.  In 2013, she felt confident enough to start www.poprageous.com fueled by her passion to celebrate art by printing it on high quality, fashion-forward apparel while promoting Made In America manufacturing.  With her massive social media following and growing sales, she isn’t looking back!
