Last week I was honored to be part of a panel of personal branding and fashion experts during Social Media Week in New York City, with Parsons the New School for Design. Joined by Aliza Licht of DKNY, fashion and media guru Susan Tabak, and talented fashion designer & Parsons alum David Ferron, we talked about innovations in social media, best practices for social media as a vehicle for promoting your personal brand, and how all this new media ties into the fashion and creative industries. It was a great chat – check it out below.
Parsons has launched the careers of illustrious designers who are synonymous with American fashion: Claire McCardell, Adrian, and Norman Norell; established industry figures Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, and Narciso Rodriguez; and, from the new generation of global designers, Proenza Schouler, Behnaz Sarafpour, Doo Ri, Vena Cava, and Ohne Titel. Follow them on Twitter for their regular #560chat.
