A Student's Perspective: 5th Annual Fashion: Now & Then Conference


This weekend, LIM College's Adrian G. Marcuse Library hosted the 5th Annual Fashion: Now & Then: Passé, Presente, 未来 Conference. I was lucky enough to attend the conference as a student worker. While I was technically working the event, I was able to learn a lot by listening to the different presenters. I was the moderator for Session M. For this session, presenters spoke about how different members of society are changing fashion. I was able to learn about how African American consumer behavior has changed from the era of slavery to the 21st Century, how the millennial generation is influencing the fashion industry through their demands of innovation and how young Chinese consumers are different from the generations before them. By participating in the Fashion: Now & Then Conference, I was able to connect with professionals in the industry and learn about their areas of expertise. It is an understatement to say the conference was a success as many of the participants and presenters constantly reminded the student workers of how much they were enjoying themselves. I look forward to what next year will bring!

  6. i am extremely confused on what career path to take. I am 16 years old and a Junior in High School, I am enrolled in a course in my school that is Nursing Assistant, I like it so far but what i really truly want to be is a Fashion Designer, And the whole purpose of why i am in a nursing assistant course in my school is so that i can get a good job in that field so i can pay for college. I am afraid i won't be good enough for fashion design as well as i don't want to move to New York City, it is beautiful, but so hectic! Also i want to become a elementary school teacher and i don't know if i should, Fashion Design seems like such a huge dream that i can't accomplish, so my question is should i still continue on wanting to be a designer? BTW i don't know how to sew, i can draw but not very good, and i don't make my own clothes, and as much as i wish to be able to do all those things, i can't... I'm sad my school is really pressuring everyone to start looking for colleges and to decide what they want to do after they graduate! Help me please!!
