On the evening of Thursday, June 22, 2017 FGIDC hosted their third annual men’s event, MEN ON THE MOVE at the Paul Stuart Store in CityCenterDC. The beautiful home of the luxury retailer was the perfect location to host such an esteemed international executive panel. Attendees enjoyed gourmet bites from Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House, and complimentary specialty cocktails from District Distilling Co.. Additionally, gift cards from Grooming Lounge, and Blank Label were presented to each attendee.
The panel discussion was lead by Timothy R. Lowery, General Manager of CityCenterDC. The international and domestic executive panel included:
Ralph Auriemma – Creative Director, Paul Stuart (New York, NY)
Samuel Nettey – Head of Design & Development, Sugi International (London, UK)
Sam Quaye – DTC Planning Manager, Nike Headquarters in (Amsterdam, NL)
Michael James Lee – Buying Manager, Coach (London, UK)
Anton Papich – Fashion Photographer (Washington, DC)
The discussion covered everything from how each participant got their start in the fashion industry, to the current state of the global retail environment and the men’s category within it. As the panel came to a close questions were addressed by the 90+ attendees.
Once the event was over, the festivities continued next door at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House for an amazing after party!
