NEW YORK — If there’s a future of fashion, it’ll come with a catch-22.
A panel organized by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Gen Art last week found itself opening a can of worms when it comes to the topic of "The Future of Fashion," specifically addressing the challenges facing young designers today.

"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.
