HELP WANTED: Four RISD grads have gotten a head start to their fashion careers, thanks to TSE. The brand’s fall collection features select items developed by Genah Kim, Austin Snyder, Anne Wang and Catrin Watson. TSE’s creative director Tina Lutz, who is an adjunct professor at the Providence school, came up with the idea.
While Watson has landed a full-time gig at LF USA, Snyder is an assistant to the artistic director at Ralph Rucci and Wang is punching the clock for New York-based designer Sandy Liang, Kim is a bit in limbo. Kim, who designed a finger-knitted cropped gilet that will retail for $1,950, is still on the job search. “I would describe my current job situation as working freelance and interested in collaborations and special projects,” she said.
