The Marvin Traub Lecture Series presents Marco Bizzarri, CEO and President of Gucci in conversation with Tim Blanks, Editor-At-Large of The Business of Fashion.

This event celebrates his extraordinary career across the fashion industry and beyond.

Marco Bizzarri’s mantra at Gucci has been to emphasize the importance of approaching the daily tasks of work in a different way, continually challenging and questioning the status quo and encouraging risk-taking within the framework of a learning organization – an organization based on a culture of empowerment, respect and inclusivity.

The astonishing turnaround that Gucci has achieved in the last three years – a unique case within the luxury fashion industry for a brand of its scale – has gained Marco Bizzarri a series of accolades, including the British Fashion Council’s Business Leader of the Year Award for 2016 and 2017 and the WWD CEO/Creative Leadership Award for 2017. He was also the recipient of the Legion of Honour, France’s highest decoration, in December 2017.

Seating is limited so please RSVP. Your Eventbrite ticket must be presented to enter this event.

The Marvin Traub Lecture and the Marvin Traub Scholarship were established to honor business innovator and longtime member of the Parsons Board of Governors, Marvin Traub (1925 – 2012), advance the design and business ideas to which he dedicated his life, and support a new generation of innovators. The Marvin Traub Lecture and Scholarship are made possible by Mrs. Marvin S. Traub, Marvin Traub Associates, and other generous donors.
