The CFDA & Tracy Reese Visit the University of Cincinnati

On October 3, as part of the  CFDA’s Visiting Designer Program, Board Member Tracy Reese visited the University of Cincinnati and met with the Fashion Design Department’s sophomore and junior students.  She shared the story of how she received her start in the industry, and later offered one-on-one portfolio critiques to all students currently working on projects for CFDA’s Scholarship Programs. Students were given the opportunity to speak about their initial design concepts, present mood boards and croquis books, as well as ask Reese questions about the future of fashion and what fashion design students should be doing to best prepare themselves to enter the industry.
