NEW YORK — For their final presentations, graduates of the Fashion Institute of Technology’s 2010 Capstone program looked to 2020, outlining the beauty industry’s boundless future. Wednesday’s graduating ceremony marked the 10th anniversary of the Capstone graduate program, one that offers instruction and training for future beauty industry executives. This year the program was sponsored by Johnson & Johnson.
The event included four 14-minute presentations, each of which imagined and explored innovative possibilities for the future of fragrance, retail, leadership and beauty. The presentations examined potential new technologies and initiatives that would engage Generation Y consumers, who collectively exert $250 billion in annual spending power, surpassing Baby Boomers by 2020.
