November 18, 2010 (New York, NY) — The Fashion Center, headquarters of the Fashion Center Business Improvement District (BID), the not-for-profit corporation that promotes New York City’s apparel industry, has unveiled its new window display, titled “Repurpose…Recycle…  Reflect.” The window was designed by Visual Merchandising students from LIM College, the nation’s only college focused exclusively on the study of business and fashion. It will be on display through January 5, 2011.
Located in Manhattan at 209 West 38th Street, the Fashion Center Space for Public Art and Design window features a female mannequin dressed in an elegant paper wedding gown. Most of the components of the window display are made of paper, much of which has been recycled, or previously used or repurposed. It was conceived, designed and installed by students in LIM College’s Visual Presentation course, which is taught by Marjorie Lee Woo, Associate Chair of the Visual Merchandising department.

“We are thrilled to be able to partner with the Fashion Center to provide this incredible opportunity for our Visual Merchandising students,” said LIM College President Elizabeth S. Marcuse. “Hands-on experience in the fashion industry has always been a hallmark of an LIM College education, and this collaboration really exemplifies that.”
