LIM COLLEGE AT THE FASHION MEDIA AWARDS

A group of LIM College students—including Lexington Line staff members and students in LIM’s Fashion Media bachelor’s degree program—attended The Daily Front Row’s 2018 Fashion Media Awards, on September 6 at the Park Hyatt New York in Manhattan. The annual event celebrates the top achievements and most influential names in fashion media.

The students were invited to the awards to represent the next generation of fashion media professionals. LIM College was an event co-sponsor.

Major names in fashion and entertainment also attended and presented awards, including Tommy Hilfiger, Nicki Minaj, Ashley Graham, Amy Schumer and Martha Stewart. The on-stage host for the evening was Darren Criss, star of Glee and The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. During the ceremony, Criss asked the LIM students to stand and be recognized, calling them "the future of fashion media."

LIM began offering its Fashion Media major in the fall of 2016. The program focuses on creating compelling content for traditional, social media, and video platforms, as well as media business management and marketing.

This was not the first time LIM and The Daily Front Row have come together to give students real-life experience in fashion media. For the past four years, LIM students have produced a special mini-magazine insert for The Daily Front Row during New York Fashion Week.
