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.
After showing a video about Ralph Lauren's career, Joseph Barrato speaks about his own career in retailing and current responsibilities as President of Ralph Lauren Black Label and Purple Label . Mr. Barrato describes his early years as a partner with Ralph Lauren and assignments at Brooks Brothers and Bergdorf's, and explains the attraction of working for a firm like Brioni that is committed to hand tailoring, luxurious fabrics and expert finishing, before returning to Ralph Lauren.
