MINKOFF ON CAMPUS: For the third installment of Fashion Campus NYC, the New York City Economic Development Corporation and Parsons The New School for Design has recruited Uri Minkoff to give the keynote address. As the chief executive officer and cofounder of Rebecca Minkoff, he will share his view of the fashion industry with the pool of fashion and retail management talent. Minkoff said, “Cultivating business leaders through programs like Fashion Campus NYC guarantees that we can continue to grow and innovate as an industry.”
To that end, there will also be a panel discussion and career path workshops presented by executives in marketing, public relations, buying, merchandising, e-commerce, product development and other areas. Parsons Executive Dean Joel Towers said: “Through our work with NYCEDC, Parsons is extending one of its core values — providing students and emerging professionals with the means to pursue successful careers in design, and supporting the industry through a strong talent pipeline.”
