Fashionably bringing together students of all fields of study through enriching programs, activities, and networking. The Fashion Art & Design Club offer opportunities to their members that they might not be able to get otherwise such as design opportunities, contests, and internships. We bring in fashion industry professionals to speak with the club and bring knowledge of the industry.
We also have teaching lessons from professors or students to show different techniques in the fashion design field that they may not have learned in class. We also use our skills to give back to others such as making items to donate. Our club is about learning, getting opportunities, and growing in the fashion industry.
As the full time professor at FIT, I created the Fashion Art Club in 2008 while another club that has been around for over 30 years, the Fashion Design Club, I was once the president of that club. In 2014, my good friend the iconic New York designer George Simonton who is also my colleague came to me and asked if we can merged the two clubs into one magnificent club....it became known as the Fashion Art & Design Club....this fall of 2016, my new president Alana Fox and I spoken with the committee and brainstormed to make it more modern and a new era, FADC.....
