LSU Student Attended New York Fashion Week
LSU Junior Katie Brunet
BATON ROUGE - Fashion was front and center in New York City last week, and LSU junior Katie Brunet experienced it like a celebrity. Brunet, an apparel design major from Baton Rouge, earned the trip to New York Fashion Week after she was selected by LSU Textiles, Apparel Design and Merchandising faculty. The immersive experience in New York City, hosted by IMG College Licensing and IMG’s fashion events division, included fashion shows and networking events at companies like Victoria’s Secret Pink.
“Attending New York Fashion Week is the dream of anyone in the industry, and it has been a personal dream of mine for many years. Getting to experience that in addition to being given so many networking opportunities and invaluable experiences was something I definitely did not want to pass up,” Brunet said. Brunet was one of 17 students participating, from 13 different universities around the country.
