How did the LVMH Art of Craftsmanship Revisited project prepare you for work in the fashion industry?

A communication-design exchange student from Germany, two guys getting their master's degrees in Design and Technology, and two undergrad fashion designers: That was our team for the Art of Craftsmanship Revisited, a competition that Parsons did with LVMH. We got really involved in each person's contributions. Teamwork was one of the most important things we learned on the Louis Vuittton project; it’s how industry works. And when it did come time for us to focus on our individual responsibilities, we took our cue from master calligrapher Bernard Maisner. He inspired us to put a lot of effort into our individual specialties.
