New York Fashion Week is one of the biggest and most memorable events that University Fashion Group has the chance to attend. Our members have gotten to experience the real backstage experience at one of the most prestigious international fashion events of the year. Working backstage lets people see the in-depth procedures and steps that go into running a major fashion show. Our members get to interact with designers, models, and handle the beautiful garments before they hit the runway. Not only does New York Fashion Week give a glimpse of the high-paced fashion industry, but it also provides numerous networking opportunities at one of the Big Four fashion capitals of the world. University Fashion Group has had the opportunity to work with well-known designers such as Lela Rose, Katie Ermilio, Naeem Khan, Gogo Graham, Project Runway, Tess Giberson, Timo Weiland, Trina Turk, and more. During the stay, our members get to explore New York City and visit art museums, restaurants, shop, and explore the nightlife. New York Fashion Week is one of the most unforgettable events that University Fashion Group is involved with and we look forward to our members attending every spring and fall. A truly unique experience, it allows us to completely immerse ourselves in creativity and fashion.
Approximately 20-25 people are chosen to go to New York Fashion Week every semester. University Fashion Group looks at points when considering New York Fashion Week applicants, but most importantly, we look at members who show the most involvement, initiative, and interest in the organization. Members can accumulate points by attending meetings, working local events, tabling, or being involved in their committees.
Applications are sent out a few weeks in advanced and will be announced once they’re available. For further information about New York Fashion Week, contact any one of our officers.
