Thomaï Serdari to Present "Why Fashion Forward Institutions Need to Invest in Community Managers"

With a career of 15 years as Director of Research Collections at the Department of Art History, New York University, Thomaï Serdari is an expert in articulating new research questions and defining interdisciplinary areas of inquiry. Her research focuses on the intersection of fine arts and commerce, a field she calls “luxury arts” and which includes luxury goods in the areas of fashion, product design, and architecture. Her ideas developed into the core course for the Luxury Marketing specialization at NYU’s Stern School of Business. Additionally, Thomaï teaches “Cultures of Excess: Product and Fashion Design through Modernity,” “Research Methods,” and “Entrepreneurship in the Business of Art” also at NYU.

Thomaï is currently working on two books, the biography of Robert Rosenblum, American art historian, and a textbook on entrepreneurship in the arts. She maintains an independent practice as a USPAP qualified appraiser in fine and luxury arts. She is the founder of Ad Nobile, a think tank dedicated to the research of processes, products, and strategies in the luxury segment of the market. Thomaï holds a PhD in Art History and Archaeology from the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU and an MBA from the Leonard N. Stern School of Business.

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.
