Fashion isn't exactly the easiest industry to break into. For those that do, success is the product of a lot of hard work, dedication, and pure passion.
It's important for anyone who aspires to make fashion their career to know what it takes to make it in, and then make it to the top.
That's why we've gathered a panel of up-and-coming fashion pioneers from every corner of the industry who are all ready to dish out the hard-earned lessons they've learned to become successful in fashion. 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. Again, 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.)
Tickets to this one-time-only event are $19.95. Sign up here now, as quantity is limited. For the slackers out there, tickets will be available at the door!
We can't wait to meet you and talk fashion!
