From executives at major corporations to entrepreneurs with the next hot fashion app or vintage boutique, these graduates of FIDM, one of the top fashion marketing schools, are out there achieving in the industry.
This year, the NRF Foundation collaborated with STORY, the New York City retailer, for the Student Challenge Competition - The Big Pitch. This business-case competition allows NRF Student Association members to demonstrate their creativity and business acumen to retail executives. FIDM's Student Team--Alexandra Began, Amanda Tobias, and Stacy Cho--was a semi-finalist (and the only fashion college to place) in the challenge, which included 17 teams from NRF member schools across the U.S. In addition to creating a 20-page pitch presentation applying business and retail concepts, students submitted a 90-second pitch video, which were then evaluated by retail executives from top companies.
