This Spring Break, EFLI invites young people ages 16-20 to join a select group of young leaders in New York City with EFLI NYC. Through this weeklong residential experience in the heart of NYC (the fashion capital of the world) explore the intersections of design and sustainability, develop your own authentic leadership style, and consider your impact on the planet — just as Eileen Fisher does in her multi-million dollar fashion company. Through hands-on workshops, meetings with innovators at the forefront of sustainable design, and site visits at EILEEN FISHER, Inc. locations, such as the Design Center, EILEEN FISHER factories, and the EILEEN FISHER Renew Recycling Center, understand what it takes to create conscious fashion in the city that never sleeps.
