NEW YORK — Another venue for emerging designers has popped up on the New York Fashion Week schedule, courtesy of YouTube and Brand Assembly.
In November, YouTube Space, a 20,000-square-foot studio located in Chelsea Market, opened as an incubator for YouTube creators, as the company calls its users, to experiment with content and the latest audio, visual and editing equipment at no cost to them. YouTube has similar outposts in London, Los Angeles and Tokyo. Via a partnership with Brand Assembly, an agency that offers business services to small designers, YouTube Space is hosting “The New Class,” a series of presentations that will be held Feb. 12 for six Brand Assembly clients: Hunter Bell, Michelle Kim, Caroline Constas, Nikki Chasin, C. Keller and Maria Dora.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
