Alumni Win $200,000 Grant
Peter Wai Chan, Production Management faculty member and alum, won a $200,000 grant with fellow FIT alum and business partner Terri Huang from the Council of Fashion Designers of America and the New York City Economic Development Corporation’s Fashion Manufacturing Initiative (FMI). This was the second time that the Sunrise Studio owners won the grant. Chan, who has two FIT degrees (Production Management: Textiles ’92, Production Management: Apparel: ’89), focuses on providing manufacturing in New York so that designers can produce locally.
