2021 Scholarship Recipient

The Rose Gordon Foundation has partnered with the IFA Paris fashion school to provide scholarship to a it's students. In addition, the foundation will provide real life work experience through it's showroom and affiliates brands. Community support is needed now more then ever to student designers. The organization stands ready to help these young artist to pursue their dreams.

Young fashion designers in school often work in a theoretical world of construction, fabric and artistic vision.

As their education progresses, the designers often find getting comfortable in an ivory tower of an institution of higher learning, undisturbed by the economic realities of fashion.

They do not consider whether a garment will come to life in front of a camera for a fashion editorial in a glossy magazine. And they do not consider whether the garment will come to life on a rack at a boutique, where it will be snagged up by a consumer.

Thanks to a new scholarship set up by NYSFE Magazine, the Rose Gordon Endowed Fashion Scholarship, fashion students at IFA Paris (a fashion school with campuses in Paris, Shanghai and Istanbul) will have the opportunity to learn to adapt their fashion visions for the realities of print and retail.

The award is for undergraduate students who are currently attending an accredited college full-time. Applicants must have a 2.5 GPA or greater and must be planning to or currently pursuing a degree leading to a career in fashion (design or marketing).

In partnership with IFA’s leadership, NYSFE magazine will help identify noteworthy students to be featured in the magazine. Additionally, Pink Maison Brand will house garments from selected IFA Paris graduate students.
