Fashion Draft NYC is an exciting new program to attract top business-minded students to NYC’s fashion firms.
An initiative of the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and Parsons the New School for Design, Fashion Draft NYC will select 25-30 graduating college seniors from around the world and bring them to New York City, all expenses paid, to interview for management-track positions with some of the City’s top fashion firms, including Bloomingdale's, Gilt, LF USA and Macy's.
The inaugural installment of Fashion Draft NYC will take place from Feb. 16-18, 2012. In addition to the interviews (for roles such as buying and marketing), students will have the opportunity to learn more about the business side of the industry through behind-the-scenes company tours, networking with fashion industry executives, and keynote addresses.
The application process starts today and runs through Nov. 3rd. All program details, including qualifications, application deadline, and an application form can be found at http://www.fashiondraftnyc.com
All applications must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST on November 3rd, 2011.
