All 11 of FIDM's International Manufacturing & Product Development Students recently visited Hong Kong, along with FIDM Vice President of Education Barbara Bundy and Special Projects Chairperson Amanda Starling, for hands-on learning in a fast-paced, global city. The group enjoyed meetings and visits with Nike, jcpenney, Union Apparel, Frontline, WE Connor, SGS, Li & Fung, Hong Kong Fashion Week, and Cotton, Inc. The trip provided plenty of inspiration and trend research for IMPD Students and offered a close-up look at sourcing and production.
