The team received the award while attending the Delta Epsilon Chi "Collegiate Leadership Academy" at New York's Hotel Pennsylvania earlier this month. The team, aptly named, "Fashionistas to the Maxx!", consisted of Kelsey Ives, Yii-Lin Chang, Allison Mussoline, and Alison Erbel.
Other participants included Sonmin Bong, Joanna Brozinsky, Rachel Donahue, Nicole Falcone, Olivia Long, Allison Mortimer, Katherine Olsen, Virginia Shipman, and Jackie Wink. During the conference and competition, students visited retail and cultural sites and heard from industry guest lecturers. Advisors are Robert Vassalotti and Sharon White.
