Project is rethinking its purpose as it emerges from the challenges that beset the fashion and retail industries during the recession.
“So many brands and retailers went out of business,” said Andrew Pollard, president of Project, the three-day expo that kicks off Monday at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. “I think our industry has changed forever and I think the way we do business has changed forever. We can inspire people a little more, inspire them more creatively and educate them. I think we’re an industry that is undereducated, highly creative, so we can avoid some of the fatal mistakes that happened in the past for our industry.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
