College Magazine has ranked Otis' Fashion Design program as the '#1 School for Fashionistas'. College Magazine is a daily online guide to campus life reaching millions of college students nationwide.
The article mentions several factors for the ranking, including that "...the Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills location displays junior and senior designs in their windows as a part of the annual Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show." The show, which provides both professional preparation for fashion students as well as acts as a benefit for the Otis Scholarship Fund, is next on May 7th at the Beverly Hilton. This year’s black-tie event, themed ‘Regarding Beauty’, will draw over 800 leaders in entertainment, fashion, business, and the art and design worlds.
Contemporary lifestyle brand Joie will receive the 2016 Otis Design Innovation Award. American designer Jenni Kayne will receive the 2016 Otis Style Icon Award and a special tribute to Rosemary Brantley, designer and Founding Chair of Otis’ Fashion Design program, is planned for her 35 years of outstanding leadership. Featured projects include collections directed by Todd Oldham, Uniqlo, Nanette Lepore, Amuse Society, Perry Ellis, Lucky Brand and more.
