April 18, 2006. Summer Rayne visited the Fashion Institute of Technology Tuesday to sit with professors in order to discuss sustainability programs throughout the school.
Though not a graduate of F.I.T., Summer Rayne has been meeting with representatives of the school for over a year discussing ideas for the implementation of sustainability programs at the world-renowned design school centered in NYC. After discussing ideas with individuals on a regular basis, a group of professors have begun assembling a team to openly discuss and help shape such programs. "The growing interest among the next-generation of students for sustainable design programs is overflowing. F.I.T. is one of the top design schools in the world. Implementing a program on sustainability throughout F.I.T. just makes perfect sense." Oakes continued to say that, "I envision F.I.T. to be the hub of innovative sustainable design in NYC, not only for students, but for industry professionals from around the world."
