High fashion shoe designer Ruthie Davis ’84 has been chosen to receive the 2016 FashInvest NYC Fashpreneur Award, which honors fashion industry entrepreneurs who exemplify a passion for recognizing early stage, high-growth opportunities and who have made an impact on the fashion community.
The award will be presented, and Davis will participate in what’s billed as “a fireside chat,” December 15, 2016, during the FashInvest Fashion Tech Conference at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. More about Davis and the award here.
Davis was on campus last fall to be part of President Rose’s Inaugural Symposium The Power of the Liberal Arts, and was interviewed by the WCSH newsmagazine 207. “It comes back to Bowdoin,” she said. “They taught us to think big. They taught us to analyze, to dream; create something new.”
