WWD Shines The Spotlight On LIM Alumni 

As part of an ongoing series of career path stories, WWD (Women's Wear Daily) has run a number of profiles on successful LIM graduates. WWD is a fashion industry trade publication often called "the bible of fashion."

  • Luisa Herrera-Garcia ('88), Senior Vice President of Operations and Production at John Varvatos Enterprises, is a leading executive in the menswear arena with more than two decades of experience at brands including Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis, and PVH.
  • Bianca Caampued ('07), Co-founder and Creative Director of Small Girls PR, has grown her start-up business into a 40-person, bi-coastal company and led projects for clients including Ann Taylor, Google, The Kingdom of the Netherlands, Simon & Schuster, and Verizon.
  • Doug Jakubowski ('83), is the President - North America, for FitFlop USA LLC. He's also a member of LIM’s Fashion Industry Advisory Board. With more than three decades of experience, Doug has held a variety of prominent positions, including Chief Merchandising Officer for Perry Ellis and Chief Merchandising Officer for Kenneth Cole Productions Inc.

In their interviews with WWD, Luisa, Bianca and Doug all credited LIM College's comprehensive industry network and internship programs for supporting their career growth.

Said Luisa, "LIM's network within the fashion business provided me with amazing exposure. I also must say that their approach with students — pushing us to excel in all of our courses — really provided me with a strong foundation for my first job."
