Members and former members of Lasell's Fashion Department participated in a recent Boston Globe sponsored talk about the future of Boston fashion.
The Boston Globe event "GLOBE TALK: Boston Fashion is SMART" was held December 4, 2012 and featured a panel of six fashion industry professionals who discussed the future of fashion in Boston and how to position the city as a world fashion leader.
Four of the six participants have a connection to Lasell College, which illustrates the reach Lasell's fashion program has had within Boston's fashion scene. The panelists included: Jay Calderin, Director of Creative Marketing at the School of Fashion Design, Founder/Executive Director of Boston Fashion Week and a former adjunct professor at Lasell; Christopher Muther, Style Reporter for the Boston Globe and former adjunct professor; Alexandra Hall who launched COUP magazine, taught in the Fashion Communication Program and currently hosts Lasell senior Alexis Robertiello as an intern; Alicia Kennedy, who currently teaches 20th Century Fashion at Lasell and has co-authored a book entitled "Fashion Design Referenced" to be published by Rockport Press in 2013 with illustrations by Lasell Fashion Department Chair Lynn Blake.
