Will YOU Be Attending Fashion Campus NYC?
Although Los Angeles is finally making it’s way to becoming part of the forefront for fashion, everyone knows that the current mecca in the US is New York City. A while ago we told you about Mayor Bloomberg’s FashionNYC2020, a year long examination of the hardships the fashion industry faces and how the city could better capitalize on it’s assets to maintain it’s priority as a center for fashion. What became of this was a 6-initiative plan to help boost NYC’s fashion industry.
Now, in their fourth initiative, The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) has chosen Parsons The New School for Design to be the home of Fashion Campus NYC. Fashion Campus NYC is set to be an intensive weekend of workshops from July 15th-16th where attendees will have the chance to partake in various seminars and learn about all the different business aspects to New York City’s fashion. They have even tapped Parsons alum Derek Lam to give a keynote address at the event. Additionally, Parsons has educated generations of fashion designers, including Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Prabal Gurung and Proenza Schouler just to name a few.
