Date Digitized
Part presentation, part Q&A, FIT's "Faces & Places in Fashion" lecture series is an opportunity to connect students and the public alike to the pulse of the fashion industry in an open and conversational setting.
Hollis describes his career as a fashion designer after graduating from FIT, emphasizing the need for being aggressive, seeking out contacts, trusting oneself, taking risks. He explains the challenge of moving from working with designers like Dana Buchman and John Bartlett and moving on briefly to independence in the bridge market for evening wear before having to return to working for private label firms. Recently he established his own womenswear firm.
