WouldYouRockThis.com creator Brandon Graham was invited to speak with students at the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI) in New York of Friday. Ms Dahill, HSFI librarian, organized this event after meeting Brandon at the Andre Studios Fashion Illustration Digital Archive event in February. Ms Dahill connected Brandon with HSFI fashion illustration teacher, Mr. Carranza, to organize a presentation of WouldYouRockThis.com for his students. Not only did Brandon discuss WYRT, but he gave the students a list of resources that could point them in the right direction to becoming a better fashion illustrator. Mr. Carranza shared some of the pieces from his students’ last project where they had to illustrate accessories – what a talented class to say the least.
Kiamesha Smalls, WYRT Operations Mgr and alum of HSFI, also joined in on the presentation by sharing her experience applying to FIT after graduating from HSFI.
