1. Her Mom Sparked Her Interest In Fashion
Madison has been working in the fashion industry for most of her life, and her love of fashion began at an early age. Madison told UM Square Magazine, “when I would watch my mom get ready and pick out her outfits and put on her makeup and even down to the finishing touches of her lipstick, I would always fantasize that I would become part of that world one day.”
2. She Doesn’t Eat Cheese
There are lots of people out there who simply won’t eat certain dishes if cheese isn’t involved, but apparently Madison could do without cheese all together. According to Bravo, she makes it very clear during her episode of Below Deck that she doesn’t like cheese. Unfortunately, the crew missed the memo and attempted to serve her pizza with cheese on it.
3. She Has A Degree In Marketing
Since fashion is clearly Madison’s passion, many people have probably figured that she went to fashion school or studied fashion formally in some capacity. However, her college degree is actually in marketing/management. She graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2010 and I think it’s safe to say she’s been making very good use of her education.
4. She Loves To Travel
Just because Madison has lived in South Carolina for most of her life doesn’t mean that she isn’t a woman of the world. In addition to having lived in New York and Mississippi, Madison has also done a lot of traveling. Some of the countries she’s been to include Mexico, Costa Rica, and Thailand.
