FIT Hosts the First Showroom Summit for Emerging Designers

Showroom Summit at FIT

If you’re not sure about whether you should join a showroom, join forces and collaborate with others or just want to learn more, then now is your opportunity to learn the ins-ands outs at FIT’s first Showroom Summit on June 22, 2017.

Created especially for emerging designers in New York, the one day event will bring together key players in the fashion industry and is only $35 because of a special grant from SUNY.
