LIM College dazzled attendees of the National Stationery Show at New York City’s Javits Center from May 20-23. Students Carinne Cusanelli, Dorothy Lamboy, Ron Domantay and Melissa Mauer, along with professors Marjorie Lee Woo, Grailing King, Monica Rakocy and Eric Feigenbaum, created a 1,600 square-foot display for the Best New Products at the show.

Said Visual Merchandising Department Chair Eric Feigenbaum, “Our display was the talk of the show – with a dynamic Hollywood red carpet theme that included an LIM College ‘step and repeat,’ and two life-size and eight miniature handcrafted paper fashions.”

This was the fifth year that the College’s Visual Merchandising Department partnered with George Little Management, the producers of the National Stationery Show, to stage this presentation and give students yet another opportunity for real-world experience. The process included several client meetings, two brainstorming sessions, a design and development session, specification, purchasing, and installation. Each student received a $100 stipend for his or her participation.
