In addition to the experiences at New York Fashion Week: The Shows, the students also spent time with key staff at sports fashion brand Champion and College Vault licensee Original Retro Brand. The students also had an opportunity to visit collegiate jewelry licensee KYLE CAVAN where they interacted with designers and marketers from the company, as well as online fashion outlet Storr and licensee Hillflint.
The program delivered unique academic enrichment opportunities for the students with costs covered by the universities. Institutions participating in this collegiate enrichment program at NYFW: The Shows includes University of Arizona, Arizona State University, University of Arkansas, University of Delaware, Northern Arizona University, University of Pittsburgh, University of South Carolina, Syracuse University, TCU, Texas A&M University, Virginia Commonwealth University, and West Virginia University.
"We are committed to delivering opportunities for future leaders in the industry to engage and learn from others that know what it takes to be successful," said Leslie Russo, Executive Vice President, IMG Fashion Events. "This unique experience aligns perfectly with our mission, and we are happy to partner with our colleagues at CLC to welcome these great students to NYFW: The Shows."
Participating students were asked to chronicle their experiences through social media using #UofNYFW and share their learnings with other students upon their return to campus.
