New York Fashion Week

Partnering with IMG College Licensing, retailing students have the opportunity to represent Texas A&M at NYFW: The Shows every September and February in New York City through a program called UofNYFW.

Two students attend NYFW.

This unique academic enrichment program provides a behind-the-scenes look at the fashion industry, including entry into select runway shows and networking opportunities with industry leaders, as well as a panel discussion with entrepreneurs and executives with top collegiate licensees.

Students experience NYFW runway shows, as well as backstage tours to observe the production and execution of a fashion show during the UofNYFW program.


“I’m so grateful that I was chosen by the Center for Retailing Studies for this program. This experience helped me realize my true passion for working in the fashion industry and how determined I am to make my mark on the world.”
– Haley Sieba ’20

“To say this was the experience of a lifetime is an understatement. I have never felt more affirmed in my passion for retail and fashion, and I left this weekend motivated to go after my dreams.”
– Shannon Perkins ’20
