    “Bobbi Pearlman was my absolute favorite instructor. A terrific artist full of life and energy–she’s an inspiration to me in my own work to this day. Jack Fenstemacher and Morton Kaish were also wonderful. We didn’t have computers or digital cameras back then, so photos were rarely taken. I wish I had some to share.” - Teresa Labiak Reinalda, Fashion Illustration

    Linda Rivera, Fashion Business Management ‘95In 1995, I graduated at Radio City Music Hall while I was pregnant with my youngest child Asante. I was so proud that day we snapped a picture with my son Kelvin. On May 24, 2018, I returned to Radio City Music Hall to see my legacy baby walk across that stage for completing his Bachelor degree.  I’ve worked at FIT for 33 years and I loved it so much that both my kids work here too. Kelvin loves what he does in Media Services and Asante is helping The Foundation keep their records straight.  WE LOVE FIT!!!!!

    “My professor, Peter Weber, was a rare human being whose dedication and commitment to his student went above and beyond classroom. He saw potential in me that I never knew I had and helped me realize it. He was my cheerleader and advocator and I carry my deepest gratitude in my heart.” - Lauren Hellberg, Advertising Design ‘95

    Lisa Baum Cantelli, Fashion Buying and Merchandising ‘89Professor Diann Valentini was my #1 influencer at FIT. She taught one of my classes and was our club advisor for DECA- she helped us in so many way to grow professionally that she made me a better candidate to handle a career, family and life. She gave us her personal time and was a great leader-everyone was important to her and she made sure we were always competitive and had clear goals. I miss her!Photo: Diann Valentini with Lisa Cantelli and Julie Marotta at DECA competition
