These efforts bring to life the Underfashion Club’s credo of “Education today for a better industry tomorrow.”

 

The 2017 Femmy will proudly host the 14th Annual Student Design Contest featuring the designs of Fashion Institute of Technology students, with the contest theme of “Athletic Allure.” Contest winners will receive cash awards presented by SAIG Co-Chairs Suzanne Beck and Clelia Parisi. The Annual Student Design Contest is an integral part of The Underfashion Club’s mission to help educate, influence and attract new talent for the future of the industry. The design contest is being sponsored by Clover Group International Ltd., Regina Miracle International (Holdings) Ltd., and Stretchline Holdings Ltd.

 

“It’s with great excitement that we announce the date and honorees for the 2017 FEMMY AWARDS. We are proud to say that this premier industry event is just one of the many ways we support the next generation of talent,” says Victor H. Vega, President of The Underfashion Club. Last year, the FEMMY Awards broke all records for money raised at $600,000.
2017 marks the 59th Anniversary of this not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization established to provide Intimate Apparel Industry leaders with a forum to exchange information and ideas, and support the Intimate Apparel market as a vital aspect of the fashion industry through its ongoing commitment to support the education of new talent.
