Ionia Dunn-Lee to Present "A Celebration of the Global Diversity Within American Fashion Design"

Ionia Dunn Lee (Fashion Editor, Instructor, Stylist) MA, Pace University, BS, California State University, is a well-known Fashion Insider in New York City. She started out at Essence Magazine in 1974, and quickly rose from the ranks to become a Fashion Editor. As her freelance styling began to pick up, she left Essence to focus on individual clients, freelance writing, and occasional teaching. She is currently the Fashion Director/Style Reporter for Today’s Black Woman, and she continues to teach at LIM College and the High School of Fashion Industry. In 2009, Ionia founded a non-profit organization called “Threads of Color” designed to celebrate the global diversity within the fashion industry and raise scholarship funds. This organization has held three major events and awarded three scholarships to students at LIM College. In 2010, Ionia was presented with the Adjunct Instructor President’s Award from LIM College for Outstanding Service to the College.

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.
