Don’t let bullies tell you how to heel

OneClique founders Sandy Saccullo and Stefani Tsakos encourage women and girls to walk tall, whether under peer pressure or throughout the day when re-fashioning oneself from formal wear to casual wear is an imperative.

The two hosted a screening of “Finding Kind” yesterday at the Faces & Places in Fashion lecture series taught by Prof. Joshua Williams. The film explores the often devastating consequences of girl-on-girl bullying. Saccullo and Tsakos are sponsoring 10 screenings of the film across the country. The two stayed to discuss their online shoe “separates,” engineered with interchangable heels and uppers.

“I think they’re offering customization and versatility that intrigues consumers,” says Accessories Design Chair Sarah Mullins. “The consumer gets to feel like a shoe designer by interchanging OneClique uppers and heels.  Hopefully it inspires future shoe designers to study Accessories Design at FIT!”

The Faces & Places lecture series is a weekly forum that features prominent fashion professionals, including executives, designers and marketers.  It is held in the Katie Murphy Amphitheater (D Building, Corner of 27th Street and 7th Avenue), the series is also open to the public, Mondays, 4pm-5pm.
