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.
Harvard and FIT grad John Bartlett describes his career as a successful, CFDA ward-winning menswear designer. After several years of designing in the late 1980's, Bartlett closed his design firm to travel and re-think his career. After working several years in Italy for Jenny and Byblos, he returned to the States to re-enter the menswear field, launching clothing, accessories and furnishing lines. He opened his first retail store in Greenwich Village in 2007 and in 2010 turned his attention to women's fashions. A brief slide show of the Fall 2010 women's line demonstrates his interest in crossover styling elementsfrom menswear to womenswear. In his discussion with the audience, he emphasizes the role of internships in starting careers and the importance of taking on all assignments . He explains how sexuality and sexual identity have influenced his fashion designs and notes how carefully he has selected models for his runway shows.
