Bloomingdale’s Chairman and CEO Delivers Keynote Address at LIM College Commencement

Posted on June 5th, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments »

Mr. Gould said, “Above all have passion for what you do! In 44+ years I have only had one job for just six months, the rest of the time I have had a passion.”

“As John Gardner said in a 1990 speech on personal renewal, ‘We learn by growing older, by suffering, by loving, by bearing with things we can’t change, by taking risks. You will learn that the world loves talent but pays off on character,’” Mr. Gould continued.

In concluding Mr. Gould told the students, “What I wish for you today and throughout your careers is the endless feeding at the trough of hope, of passion, of dreams, of learning, of constant self-renewal in the quest that everyone has within themselves to be more than you thought you could be.”

Mr. Gould was also presented with LIM College’s Distinguished Achievement Award and an honorary Doctor of Commercial Science degree. Manhattan Borough President Scott M. Stringer also received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree at the ceremony, during which approximately 300 LIM College undergraduate students and 26 MBA graduates received degrees.

Posted on January 23rd, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments »

The use of technology for shopping by 18-25 year-olds is significantly overrated. In fact, more than 68% of the 18-25 year-olds surveyed “prefer to shop in stores than online for apparel and shoes,” according to Shopping Trends Among 18-25 Year-Olds, a survey done by a group of LIM College students and in conjunction with the National Retail Federation Student Association (NRFSA).

The survey results were released Jan. 17 at the National Retail Federation (NRF)’s 101st Annual Convention at the Javits Center in New York City. A press release about the students’ survey findings has now made its way onto more than 300 media outlets’ websites, throughout the U.S. and internationally. These include the websites of 162 local TV stations (in cities including Phoenix, San Diego, Honolulu, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Seattle), 30 trade publications, and 87 newspapers, including the Houston Chronicle, Boston Globe, Yahoo! Finance, Los Angeles Daily News, Newsday, Dallas Business Journal, and the Anchorage Daily News.

NYC’s Fashion Center Features “Made In The USA” Window Designed by LIM College Students

Posted on December 7th, 2011 in Uncategorized | No Comments »

A window display titled “Made in the USA,” designed by Visual Merchandising students from LIM College, was recently unveiled at The Fashion Center Space for Public Art and Design, which is part of the headquarters of the Fashion Center Business Improvement District (BID), the not-for-profit corporation that promotes New York City’s apparel industry. The window will be on display through December 15, 2011.

The window features images of products and brands that are “Made in the USA” that one might spot during a quintessential all-American pastime: tailgating. The back of a Chevrolet truck with Goodyear tires holds classic tailgating treats including the iconic American hotdog, Coca-Cola, and snack brands such as Cracker Jack, Lay’s potato chips and Doritos. And a mannequin wears an ensemble made completely from labels of the Hershey brand — the top combines cuttings of the wrappers of Kit Kat bars and Reese’s Pieces and the skirt flounce is a double tier of Hershey chocolate bar wrappers.

The window design aims to showcase great American brands and encourage their purchase to help support the American economy and domestic job security by asking the question “Where Were You Made?”
