Nicole Priore, Class of 2011 Merchandise Guideline Manager, Lord & Taylor

“An LIM College education puts you at the front of the line for many job opportunities…Utilize your professors by asking questions and staying in touch!”

As part of Lord & Taylor’s Executive Visual Team, Nicole acts as a liaison between merchant strategies and store execution. She communicates merchandising/product knowledge information to stores so they can execute promotions and changes on the selling floor.

As a Fashion Merchandising major with a concentration in Visual Merchandising, Nicole developed vital skills for success by learning how to work with InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator in her LIM College classes. She uses these programs on a daily basis in her current position. Internships at Express, Juicy Couture, and Bergdorf Goodman also provided Nicole with important experience to jump-start her career.

Nicole recently launched her own company, called LUXE Brand Design. It focuses on visual branding for small businesses, including logo and web design, promotional ads, and social media marketing. Her long-term goal is to grow this part-time start-up into a full-time venture.
