New York City is the fashion capital of the U.S. and a great place for Apparel, Retail Merchandising, and Design students to learn about the industry. We observed a diverse range of career opportunities related to design, production, and distribution of fashion apparel and accessories through visits to businesses like Nanette Lepore, Star Branding, Ross Stores, First 2 Print, and Fashion Snoops. Students also toured retail stores like Tommy Hilfiger, Kate Spade, and Kleinfeld Bridal to observe merchandising and sales of products. In addition, we experienced the culture, sights, tastes, and excitement that is all part of New York City.
