For nearly 20 years, I've worked on both the design and retail sides of the New York City Apparel industry. My design clients have included Michael Kors, Target, Nordstroms, J.C. Penney, GAP Group, J. Crew, and Cutter & Buck. I have managed men's tailored clothing and designer businesses for Bergdorf Goodman, Loro Piana, Barneys New York, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Peter Elliot Group. I take all of this experience with me in my current position as an Assistant Professor, responsible for teaching courses in Fashion Marketing, Luxury, and Design Thinking.
