Twenty-one students in Washington State University’s Apparel Merchandising, Design and Textiles spent spring break in the nation’s fashion hub, New York City.
The group, led by department chair Karen Leonas, visited the FIT Museum as well as 16 different design and merchandising headquarters, such as Niketown, Tommy Hilfiger, Kenneth Cole, Ann Tayler and Jantzen. They also enjoyed a Broadway play and guided bus tour of the city.
“The students did a great job of asking questions, and they represented the university and our department well,” Leonas said.
Students participating were: Andy Bennett, Megan Berry, Kate Bresnahan, Casey Burnette, Carly Dobratz, Hannah Fanslow, Kaitlin Geiger, Leanne Goldstein, Lani Green-Rowly, Marissa Herrera, Tegan Johnson, Ashley Kellogg, Dusting Larsen, Elana Levy, Suganah Moncrease, Kayla Morrison, Elliott Pollard, Emily Spilker, Carlin Sweitzer, Rachel Tapert and Lauren Verrelli.
