Faces and Places in Fashion: Roberto Faraone Mennella & Amadeo Scognamiglio
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.
Business and design partners Mr. Mennella describe how they broke into fashion and couture jewelery. Together, in 2001, after earning law degrees in Italy and studying at Parsons and FIT, they established Faraone Menella R.F.M.A.S., successfully marketing their designs to high-end retailers like Bergdorf Goodman and Nieman-Marcus and have established their own store on 57th Street in New York City.
