A Panel on Fashion Criticism featuring Robin Givhan, Stefano Tonchi and Guy Trebay

6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

A panel on fashion criticism, moderated by Francesca Granata, assistant professor of Fashion Studies at Parsons School of Design and editor of Fashion Projects will be held to celebrate Fashion Projects’s new issue, which is devoted to the subject of fashion criticism and features interviews with Givhan, Tonchi and Trebay as well as Judith Thurman (New Yorker), Suzy Menkes (International Herald Tribune), and others leading fashion critics. 

Panelists include:

  • Robin Givhan (the first fashion critic to receive a Pulitzer Prize)
  • Stefano Tonchi (editor-in-chief of W magazine)
  • Guy Trebay (New York Times culture and style reporter)

Fashion Projects was founded by Granata in 2005. It has received grants from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. The issue, the journal’s fourth print edition, was praised by the Columbia Journalism Review for covering “the discipline, accessibly, from an academic perspective.” It includes contributions from alumni of Parsons MA Fashion Studies and MA in the History of Decorative Arts and Design and was designed by Sarah Smith—a graduate of Parsons BFA in Communication Design.

The panel is made possible by the School of Art and Design History and Theory and the MA Fashion Studies.

Please join us for a late reception of wine and snacks after the event.
