Fashion’s Newest Generation: Career Day
at the High School of Fashion Industries

It still makes my heart skip a beat to be told to report to the principal’s office.

Even if it’s really only the Principal’s conference room…which is where we met to kick off the 24th annual HSFI Career Day this morning with Principal Daryl Blank and a strong cuppa joe. The nearly 50 guest speakers from a range of careers then reported to their “classrooms” for their morning mentoring sessions with the students, among them Karen Alberg Grossman from MR Magazine, Tommy Hilfiger’s Kim Friday, designers Sal Cesarani, Brooks Brothers’ Brian Lane, and photographers Jamie McCarthy and Michael Loccisano from Getty Images.
