Editor-in-Chief Maria Cristina Marrero to Judge the College's Most Talented Graduating Fashion Designers for the Second Year

NEW YORK, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Siempre Mujer magazine, the largest beauty, fashion, and lifestyle magazine for Latinas, today announced that Editor-in-Chief Maria Cristina Marrero will join a prestigious panel of judges to select the winner of the second-annual Siempre Mujer-sponsored Best Use of Color Award for The Future of Fashion, the Fashion Institute of Technology's (FIT) annual end-of-year runway show.

The Best Use of Color award is given to the student designer whose use of color most enhances the design of his or her garment. The winning look will be selected during Judging Day on April 22, presented at the final The Future of Fashion show on Thursday, May 1, at 7 p.m. at FIT's John E. Reeves Great Hall. The designer will also be featured in Siempre Mujer in a "Key to Success" feature.

"Siempre Mujer is so excited to return to The Future of Fashion show," says Marrero. "I'm looking forward to seeing the freshest designs from up-and-coming talent, and judging how they incorporate color to enhance their garments in innovative and expressive ways."

FIT's The Future of Fashion is the place for established designers, editors, and other VIPs to preview the fashion industry's most promising young designers. Approximately 85 designers will be selected from a class of 160 students to present fall 2014 looks in the four women's wear specializations offered at FIT, including sportswear, special occasion, knitwear and intimate apparel, plus children's wear. The professionally produced show also showcases a capsule collection by graduating Fashion Design students who spent their final year at the college's Milan campus at the Politecnico di Milano.

The media and fashion industry professionals selecting the 85 looks for this year's runway are Bryan Boy (blogger, BryanBoy.com), Kate Betts (author, contributor CNN, NPR's Marketplace, Travel & Leisure and Elle Decor), Alana Kelen (stylist, MTV Networks), Colleen Sherin (senior fashion director, Saks Fifth Avenue), Lilliana Vasquez (founder, CheapChicas.com; author of The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style), and Beagy Zielinski (founder, L'Armoire Du Stylist).

The nine major designers and design houses that mentored students as they created their final collections include Kate Williams from Donna Karan (knitwear), Reiko Waisglass from Phillip Lim (knitwear), Rebecca Minkoff (sportswear), Daniel Vosovic (sportswear), Felicia Zivkovic from Lela Rose (sportswear), Brandon Sun (sportswear), Mathieu Mirano (special occasion), Jennifer Zuccarini from Fleur du Mal (intimate apparel), and Lisa di Napoli from Tommy Hilfiger Kids (children's wear). Each designer will also choose one outstanding garment in his or her category to receive a special Critics Award.

The Future of Fashion show is supported by generous donations from Calvin Klein, Calvin Klein, Inc., and MAC. Support for the show's video presentation is provided by Chico's FAS.

MAC and its team of makeup artists will also provide makeup artistry for the show, celebrity hairstylist John Barrett of John Barrett Salon, located on the penthouse floor of New York's Bergdorf Goodman, will direct a team of hairstylists, and Refinery 29 New York Editor Annie Georgia Greenberg will provide fashion styling.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
