The New York City Economic Development Corporation and Parsons The New School for Design has kicked off Fashion Draft NYC, a networking opportunity meant to attract young talent to the fashion industry.
The effort is one of six initiatives spearheaded by the city to try to enhance long-term growth of New York’s $55 billion fashion industry. Through Fashion Draft NYC, business-minded students from around the globe will visit the city to brainstorm and interview with fashion executives. The end result could potentially be a full-time, management-track job with one of the participating New York-based companies.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
