Pittsburgh has been granted approval to establish a provisional chapter of Fashion Group International. The group's mission is to unite fashion and design professionals and help members become more effective in their careers through networking and activities.
The process took about a year, but Stephanie Taylor, department chair of fashion marketing and fashion design at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, sought to have the city awarded the status. The New York office will monitor Pittsburgh's progress. During the next month, there will be interviews for leadership roles for the organization's board.
The next meeting is at 6 p.m. March 27 at the Art Institute, Downtown, where board members will be announced. Taylor plans to showcase Pittsburgh's fashion talent at the meetings and to partner with Pittsburgh Fashion Week in September and Style Week Pittsburgh in August.
