Faces and Places in Fashion: Vickt Tiel


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 graduating from Parsons, Ms. Tiel settled in Paris with a business partner and set up a boutique called Mia and Vicky, where among other things she designed what she calls the world's first mini skirt. Ms. Tiel explains that she is just finishing a memoir called "The Power of a Dress" where she remembers and credits all of the people who mentored her in her career and describes how she made it as an artist. Her current concentration is bridalwear for Bergdorf Goodman. A brief video illustrates highlights from her career.
