In a move designed to support the constantly evolving world of fashion, the YMA Scholarship Fund, a non-profit organization that finances degrees in design, is hosting the 2009 FSF Roundtable, an industry event that is free to students.
The theme of this year''s roundtable is Redesigning the Rules of Fashion in Today''s Media, and the event will feature noted industry professionals such as Mary Alice Stephenson, Brian Reyes and Dani Stahl.
Part open discussion, part Q-and-A session - the FSF Roundtable provides design students the chance to interact with leading designers and critics, provide their opinions on new media''s role in the fashion world and catch a glimpse of the future of the design industry.
The event serves as a precursor to the 2010 FSF Geoffrey Beene Fashion Scholarship Awards Dinner, when the organization will name the year''s 110 scholarship recipients.
In addition to helping with tuition and cost of living, the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund works to advance the careers of student designers through mentorship programs, internships and career placement options.
