BACK ON CAMPUS: The New York City Economic Development Corp. and Parsons The New School for Design will present the second annual Fashion Campus NYC June 15 and 16 on the school’s campus. Rachel Roy will be the keynote speaker at this year’s event, which is designed to show off the business side of the industry, as well as networking opportunities. As of April 16, students interested in attending the free program can register online at fashioncampusnyc.com.
The program’s aim is to have students pursue careers in New York’s fashion industry, after they graduate, and in doing so try to bolster the city’s status as a global fashion leader. Fashion Campus NYC is an offshoot of Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s FashionNYC2020, a study of the industry’s dynamics and initiative meant to enhance the industry’s leader status.
