Last week, the LIM College in NYC hosted a truly amazing two-day conference called “Fashion: Now & Then” in which participants discussed the past, present, and future uses of fashion information.
I attended this conference, which I understand will be an annual event, and wanted to provide feedback for all those who may consider it in the future.
The event was located in the lovely mid-town Manhattan LIM townhouse. It was very well organized and ran smoothly. The two days were packed with a long succession of presentations by top-notch speakers from academic institutions, museums, and the fashion industry. It was both fun and highly educational, as well as an unmatched networking opportunity.
And having Sunday off for shopping and museums in NYC was a huge plus!
I can very highly recommend this event for the future.
Lastly, I want to offer my sincerest congratulations for the event organizer, our own Lisa Ryan. Great, great job, Lisa!!! I’ll definitely be there next year!
