A Visit with Summer and Rumi

The FDM 495: Capstone Portfolio class had the great opportunity to talk story with two local fashion designers and entrepreneurs, Summer Shiigi (Ten Tomorrow) and Rumi Roberston (Rumi Murakami label). The two designers discussed their background information, their triumphs, trials, and tribulations in owning a small business. The fashion gurus encouraged our soon-to-be graduates to ask questions in regards to the fashion industry and in owning a small business in this current business climate, what to expect after graduation, as well as what advice they can share with new fashion graduates in a very competitive field. The FDMseniors were thrilled that the designers disclosed their experiences and insights and are grateful to have met with Summer and Rumi. We are truly appreciative to have Summer and Rumi’s unyielding support all these years. They have been the best mentors to FDM students in our internship program, as well as very active FDM Advisory Board members. Mahalo, Summer and Rumi!
