With two recent panels, the Fashion Institute of Technology aimed to help its students navigate the ever-evolving digital space.
On March 5, about 75 alumni and current students of the FIT Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing and Management program gathered to listen to leaders in the digital space share their insights. The panel was composed of Mariah Chase, cofounder and former president of Send the Trend; Maya Mikhailov, vice president and cofounder of GPShopper; Erika Bearman, senior vice president, global communications at Oscar de la Renta; Matt Knell, social media director for AOL, and Stephanie Dishart Kramer, U.S. marketing director for Chanel. The discussion was moderated by Ellen Byron of the Wall Street Journal.
