About Fashion Insiders
Featuring leaders in their respective disciplines, Fashion Insiders evenings provide LIM College students with special access to some of the most fascinating figures in the fashion industry. Fashion Insiders events are held at 6:30 p.m. at LIM College’s Townhouse at 12 East 53rd Street.

The February Fashion Insiders event featured Susan Ashbrook, author of Will Work for Shoes, which details the art and business of red carpet marketing. A screening of the film Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston, along with a Q&A with director Whitney Sudler-Smith, legendary model Pat Cleveland, and fashion stylist Phillip Bloch, kicked off the series on January 26.

According to Michael Palladino, Director of Student Life, who coordinates the series, “Access to industry professionals is an important component of an LIM College education. Fashion Insiders events expose our students to people who, each in their own unique way, have made their mark on the fashion world.”
