F.I.T.’s Public Relations for Fashion: The Industry in Action // Guest Speaker

giejo-gabby-sabarwhal

So, I’ve done a few pre-college courses now through F.I.T. including one for styling and fashion journalism with Christina Shanahan, Senior Editor at Instyle, which was so informative and such a blast. But PR is something I have always had an interest in as well since my mom has her own PR firm. This has definitely influenced me in discovering and learning more about this role in the industry. Yet I really wanted to get a different perspective of the PR world in more of an educational setting, so I signed up for their course on Public Relations for Fashion: The Industry in Action, taught by Stacey Karesh F.I.T. seriously has some of the top professors, many of whom have been hands on in the industry and have held a variety of positions. The PR course is only a workshop offered in the spring right now and I’ve basically been waiting a year to take it since last time it was fully-booked. I hope the administration to add it to the 12-week program so more students will have the chance to enroll. So far, this program has been such an amazing experience taught by Stacey Karesh, a special events marketing manager at Lord & Taylor. This week, we heard from an Industry guest speaker, Gabby Sabharwal, Public Relations Director for Artizia, and if that 9 to 5 isn’t enough, this creative also has her own innovative swimsuit line, Giego. I had never heard of Giego prior to her Q and A in class, but I I really do have an obsession with swimwear so of course I had to find her site and check it out. These are the chicest suits I’ve seen in a while. The brand has been quite successful with coverage from the NY Daily News to Vogue, these dope swimline pieces allow you to mix and match so you’re able to achieve your own personalized look. Check them out

I would so mix the butterfly bandeau metallic stripe top X the high rise red aztec bottoms, and the V neck black and white one-piece is super bomb. X
