Faces and Places in Fashion: Amedeo 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.
Amedeo Scognamiglio describes his role in the sixth generation of the Scognamiglio family's cameo making business.
