George Sanchez to Present "Fashion Education in NYC: Then & Now"

George Sanchez (MLS, Rutgers University, MPS, New York Technical College) came to LIM College in 1985 and served as the Director of the Adrian G. Marcuse Library for 25 years. His experience in retailing and in human resources brought a fashion business perspective to his academic credentials. He was knowledgeable in many areas, such as, general business, film and fashion as well as music. He was also known for his dedication to teaching and working with individual students and faculty on their research projects. Under his leadership, the library expanded along with the college from a 900-square-foot space with 8,000 volumes to a 5,000-square-foot facility with over 18,000 volumes and an electronic collection. George also performed with the LIM College Players as a tribute to the late faculty member Leah Ryan to help raise scholarship funds for students. He recently “retired,” and is currently teaching classes at Fashion Institute of Technology and enjoying time with friends and family.

On Friday, October 19th and Saturday, October 20th professionals from the fashion industry, libraries, archives, academic institutions, publishers, and museums will gather at LIM College for Fashion: Now & Then, a conference on the past, present, and future uses of fashion information that will consist of lectures and panel discussions.
