THIS FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 2011
NOON to 12:30 PM
Our Fashion Design Students have created a
commemorative exhibit of shirtwaist designs.
The names of the 146 garment workers
will be read out loud by NCC Fashion Design Students
We’ll be running a looped video of the
PBS special, “The Triangle Fire“.
Stop by for a cup of coffee, compliments of TOP FLIGHT,
and help us honor the memory of the workers who perished 100 years ago
Sponsored by the Fashion Design Area of the
Marketing/Retailing/Fashion Buying & Merchandising/
Fashion Design/Interior Design Department
This announcement was sent in by NCCFT member Prof. Joseph Pescatore, a faculty member in the Fashion Design Area. Thank you Joe!
And, there are still time for SUNY/CUNY community college students to enter the 2011 David A. Garfinkel Essay Competition. This year’s theme: The legal legacy of the Triangle Shirtwaist fire. The student with the winning entry will receive $1500.
