NYC Studio Fall 2018 NYC Alumni Exclusive Event
The NYC Studio held its fall 2018 NYC Alumni Exclusive event on October 17, bringing together current NYC Studio students and Fashion School alumni who live and work in New York City.
This event is a highlight of each fall and spring semester at the Studio and gives students an opportunity to network with Fashion School alumni currently working in the New York fashion industry. Over 25 alumni were in attendance, representing Amazon, Ann Inc., Bradbury Lewis, Camuto Group, Christie’s Auction House, Global Brands Group, Macy’s, Inc., Nautica, PVH, Ralph Lauren, The RealReal, Ross Stores, Inc., Saks Fifth Avenue, Sally LaPointe, Steve Madden, and more.
The evening consisted of question and answer panels where students asked questions and directly interacted with alumni to learn about hiring tips, career advice, moving to New York and some of the do’s and don’ts of working in the NYC fashion industry.
After the panel, students further connected with alumni by networking and engaging in more personalized career-oriented discussions. Because of the event’s popularity and growth, the NYC Studio looks forward to hosting the event over the course of two evenings in future semesters to accommodate the growing number of alumni who attend.
