Ralph Lauren Showroom Tour, July 25

Monday evening, an enthusiastic group of over thirty YMA FSF Scholars participated in an exclusive tour of the Ralph Lauren Menswear showroom at the RL headquarters in NYC.  Representatives of a diversity of departments, including Buying/Wholesale, Public Relations, Design and Merchandising presented their role within the company and discussed what excites them about their work.  Merchandisers from the Ralph Lauren-owned company Club Monaco also talked about how they contribute to their team and the growth of their directional brand.

Many of the Ralph Lauren executives who presented are former YMA FSF Scholars themselves such as Ralph Lauren Black Label Designer Nathan Gryszowka (2003 Scholar). Their success in the industry enforces the YMA FSF’s mission of cultivating talented youth to become the future of fashion.

Scholars parted the evening with a feel for of the world of Ralph Lauren and an appreciation of the dedicated RL team that has made a career of furthering this iconic brand.

Thank you to all the Ralph Lauren executives and YMA FSF Board Members who made this special event possible!
