In 2007, he launched Patrick J. Clayton Productions, an event planning and production company that puts on events throughout North America.
Patrick also previously worked at Lacoste and Robert Verdi Inc. Now, his company specializes in high-profile product launches for clients such as L’Oréal, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Clinique.
"LIM put me right in the thick of the fashion industry," Patrick tells WWD. "My favorite professors were truly inspirational, both from a business and a design perspective,” he continues. "LIM was also pivotal in helping me meet and secure a job with Robert Verdi."
As an LIM alumnus, Patrick has remained involved with the College throughout the years, attending career fairs, hiring LIM interns, and teaching courses in fashion show production and event planning.
