Behind the Scenes at New York Fashion Week

Fashion Week is an especially exciting time for FIT’s students—and not only for those studying fashion design. It offers all of our students the opportunity to work behind the scenes as interns and become acquainted with the true “nuts and bolts” of this vibrant part of the New York City culture and economy.

Fashion Week takes place twice a year. At last fall’s Fashion Week, Alex Joseph, managing editor of the FIT magazine Hue, taped our participation in the event, from the moment our students apply, through their training, to backstage as the shows went on. We had quite a presence, with almost 1000 talented, hard-working and ambitious FIT students filling as many as 1500 backstage positions.

This video captures a wonderful slice of FIT life and I hope you will enjoy it.
