We had the honor of attending The High School of Fashion Industries 29th Annual Student Style Celebration on June 3rd, 2015. Ken Downing, Senior Vice President and Fashion Director of Neiman Marcus, was honored at the event and made a beautiful speech with advice for the graduating class on entering the industry and truly becoming the future of fashion. Ken received the Fashion Visionary Award, which is presented to industry professionals for their support of the emerging youth inspired by and in pursuit of the fashion industry. His kind words were followed by the student fashion show, where the looks were divided by different themes and inspirations that served as the motivation for each student designer.
The finale featured the garments created by the seven finalists from the “100 Years of Staying on Track” competition sponsored by TrimLab. As the zipper-centric garments traveled the runway, the stage screens lit up with the TrimLab logo. We were so pleased at being able to watch the competition garments brought to life and to have TrimLab recognized in such an dramatic manner. Since the beginning of HSFI in 1926, the high school has prided itself on their ability to create important and meaningful relationships with industry professionals. We are extremely pleased and honored to be a part of it.
