Fashion Draft NYC

Hosted by Parsons the New School for Design, Fashion Draft NYC is a talent recruitment program that aims to connect business-minded college seniors with management-track positions at some of NYC’s top fashion firms, including Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Gilt Groupe, and Theory.

Fashion Draft NYC 2013

The second installment of Fashion Draft NYC took place from February 14th-16th, 2013. Select students were provided with an all-expenses-paid trip to NYC, during which they interviewed for full-time jobs in fashion business. In addition to the interviews, exciting events included:

  • A keynote address
  • Company tours that provided a behind-the-scenes look at the industry
  • A networking dinner with fashion executives and human resources managers

The contest was open to undergraduate seniors on track to graduate in Spring 2013 with at least a 3.0 GPA and one or more completed internships relevant to business and/or fashion. For full program details, visit the Fashion Draft NYC website.
