BATON ROUGE – Sponsored by Hemline@LSU, Lisa Iancoco, an up-and-coming designer, spoke to LSU students about the fashion industry on Jan. 31 in the lobby of the Human Ecology Building.
Originally from Cincinnati and an alumna of the University of Cincinnati, Iancoco has quickly climbed the ladder of success in the fashion world by doing well in tryouts for “Project Runway” and holding many prestigious jobs and internships, particularly in New York. Some of these jobs include working for American Eagle and Anthropologie, as well as designers Betsey Johnson and Proenza Schouler. Iancoco came to Louisiana after interning with LSU alumna Suzanne Perron. She is co-founder of NOLASewn, a garment production factory in New Orleans, and has started her own line, “Iancoco New Orleans.”
Those in attendance included current and former Agriculture Residential College students and faculty members of the LSU School of Human Ecology’s Division of Textiles, Apparel Design and Merchandising.
Hemline@LSU is a student organization for those interested in fashion. The organization hosts trunk shows and fashion shows, and also volunteers at fashion shows such as NOLA Fashion Week.
