Our series "How I'm Making It," which profiles up-and-coming fashion pioneers as they climb the industry ranks, has inspired and informed you. Especially those of you looking to break into fashion.
And from now until Sunday, you can purchase tickets for basically the cost of a movie. Except promise this panel discussion will be far more helpful and useful than Water for Elephants or Scream 4 (though probably not as funny as Bridesmaids). Tickets to this one-time-only event are $19.95. But we're offering $5 off to those who sign up by Sunday, using promotional code 76LYFY. Sign up here now, as quantity is limited.
In December, we hosted our first How I'm Making It panel discussion, which was such a success we're bringing it back. The latest installment of "How I'm Making It: What It Takes To Succeed In Fashion" will take place on May 9, 2011 from 7pm-8.30pm in the Cantor Film Center at NYU. This session's panelists are:
Chris Benz (Fashion designer and Fashionista columnist!)
- Gayle Dizon (Dizon Inc., runway producer for Proenza Schouler, Thakoon, and Isaac Mizrahi)
- Cindy Krupp (Krupp Group, public relations for brands like Rachel Comey, Chris Benz, Lover)
- Katherine Krause (Editor of Dossier Magazine)
- Skye Parrott (Photographer and Creative Director of Dossier Magazine)
Moderated by us--Fashionista editors Lauren Sherman and Leah Chernikoff--we'll be asking these rising fashion stars how they broke into the business, and how they're making it now. There will also be an audience Q&A, so we can pretty much guarantee your questions will be answered. (As long as it's not, you know, super weird or inappropriate.)
We can't wait to meet you and talk fashion! Here are the details again:
