What I wouldn’t give to pick the brain of one of fashion’s biggest names?!? For the talented interns of the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund, “Breakfast with the Boss” events this summer allow them to do just that, most recently with none other than the legendary Jason Wu!
Wu welcomed the group of 16 YMA FSF scholars to The Lambs Club in New York on July 10th for a candid conversation about his early years in the industry. Answering questions, sharing advice and personal memories, the event was a unique opportunity to see one of fashion’s biggest and best give back to the fashion community, taking an interest in the next generation of designers.
Wu was the recipient of the Future of Fashion Award at the 2012 YMA FSF Geoffrey Beene National Scholarship Awards Dinner in January.
The YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund (FSF) is a national not‐for‐profit association consisting of influential members of the fashion community, dedicated to promoting education of the fashion, arts and business by granting scholarships to talented students and facilitating internships, mentorships and career guidance.
Be sure to shop Wu’s line at Neiman Marcus…I’m obsessed with the Striped Sweater, Handkerchief-Hem Tweed Skirt and Narrow Turn-Lock Belt. Literally. Obsessed.
Congrats YMA FSF scholars – we can’t wait to soon be shopping your lines!
