NEW YORK -- A seminar on developments in home shopping is the first event scheduled by The Fashion Roundtable, a new organization of fashion and related-business executives based here. It will be held Thursday starting at 5 p.m. at the National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South.
The Roundtable was founded in December by attorney Charles Klein of Davidoff & Malito, who will host the panel discussionentitled "A Conversation About Television Home Shopping." Scheduled panelists include designers Arnold Scaasi and Diane Von Furstenberg; QVC's director of television services, Mark Bozek; Q2 president Candice Carpenter; John Pinocci, vice president of Home Shopping Network; Kurt Barnard, president and publisher of Barnard Enterprises, retail consultants; Martin P. Krasner, president, Costume Jewelry Co.; Kenneth Linder, vice president of the private label division of Eminent Sportswear, and Viola Stasio Troop, president of R&V International/Global Licensing.
The second event, scheduled for March 24 at the same location, will be on the future of retailing and trends for the Nineties.
Klein, whose clients include Todd Oldham, Tom and Linda Platt and the Fashion Association, said he got the idea to start the group after organizing some seminars on fashion business.
Claiming the organization has 200 members, Klein said he's trying to develop a varied membership base. Klein also sees the association as a networking and mentoring group with open discussion of business problems.
Klein said membership is being recruited through a mailing of about 5,000 brochures. The annual membership fee will be $75, which will include free admission to two seminars. The non-member cost for the home shopping seminar is $45.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
