Fashion Industry Panel Discussion: Thursday, July 28th




Attention scholars! This coming Thursday evening, the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund is hosting a fashion industry panel discussion from 6:00-8:30 pm. The event will be held at NYU’s Gallatin School for Individualized Study and will be moderated by fashion writer Lisa Marsh. In attendance will be scholars interning in NYC for the summer as well as the FSF Board Members.

In addition to the scholars and board members, we will have a panel of esteemed fashion industry insiders including:

Malcolm Carfrae – Executive Vice President – Global Communications, Calvin Klein, Inc.

Nary Manivong and Ally Hilfiger – Founders and Creative Directors, NAHM

Jeni Rose – Vice President, IMG Models

Annabel Tollman – Fashion Stylist and Journalist

Amy Levin – Founder/Creative Director and Editor-in-Chief, College Fashionista


The theme of the event is “The Future of Fashion: What Does it Look Like and What is My Role?” It will be an advice-driven discussion where the panelists will provide insight to the FSF scholars based on their unique and extensive experiences in the fashion industry, and their thoughts on how fashion is evolving.


This event is the finale to a series of events the FSF designed to enhance their internship program in New York City, which has included an intern and NYC alumni meet-and-greet picnic in Central Park, Breakfast with the Boss: a weekly breakfast with a small group of interns and a top fashion industry executive, and a tour of the Polo Ralph Lauren showroom accompanied by an introduction to each of their departments.


The reception will begin at 6 pm in the gallery and the panel discussion will commence at 7 pm in the theater, which will be followed by a Q&A session. Hope to see you there!
