India Johnson, Apparel and Textile Design major, recently got to experience two New York Fashion Week, or NYFW, runway shows and was given backstage tours as part of a program designed to support innovation and the development of future leaders in the fashion industry.

This one-of-a-kind NYFW experience was made possible thanks to a collaboration between Michigan State University; CLC, the university’s exclusive trademark licensing agency and the fashion events division of IMG, which manages some of the world’s greatest athletes and fashion icons. Johnson was one of 17 students from nine different universities who participated in the program.
