Marist Voices: New York Fashion Week

nanette-headderThis Fall Marist College and its Fashion Program were delighted to honor designer Nanette Lepore with an exciting special reprise showing of the designer’s newest collection on the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week runway, including the presentation of the College’s Silver Needle Fashion Icon Award.  It was a great pleasure to celebrate Nanette’s remarkable career and creativity, her tireless support of the American fashion industry, and her commitment to education with this special award.  Nanette is only the third designer to receive this honor.  She joins honorees Pauline Trigère, 2000, and Betsey Johnson, 2014. #MaristXNL. In this “Marist Voices” video, Marist alumni Laurie DeJong (President & CEO, LDJ Productions) and Danielle DeZao speak about Marist, their careers in the Fashion industry, and working Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City.
