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.
