  1. Mara! What an AMAZING day! Having graduated last May into the depths of the recession, finding work has been more than challenging and inspiration has been fading. I’ve watched so many of my fellow classmates take jobs outside our field or move back home due to lack of work. These iconic designers that you have miraculously assembled for this one day of sharing and encouragement was a breath of fresh air. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

  2. Elissa Shapiro,

    Is there is any type of registration or can I just come to the event?

  5. Aditi Rao,
