LIM College Professor and Alumna Interviewed for WNYC News Piece on Fashion Week

9/16/2010

Reporter asks "What is the point of Fashion Week?"

Professor Michael Londrigan, Chair of the LIM College Fashion Merchandising department was interviewed for a piece on WNYC radio on the relevance of Fashion Week in an internet age.

Asked if Fashion Week was still relevant, Professor Londrigan said it "is all about the buzz." He said the shows have become more of a media event, as labels and buyers are in touch with each other all the time, and no longer rely on the bi-annual shows to introduce new designs.

Ports 1961President Jacqui Wenzel, who is an alumna of LIM College, had a different take. Fashion is "a visual business," she said, and felt the shows were important  to "create a mood and an image of the woman who our designer is envisioning."

LIM College Advisory Board member David Wolfe of Doneger Creative Services was also interviewed for the piece.
