Clothing Communication: Award-Winning Journalist To Speak On The Role Clothing Has In Our Lives
Hélène Biandudi Hofer will share her powerful story of success as part of Genesee Community College's Fashion Business Program Speaker Series. Starting at just eight years old with a home-made studio and using her friends and neighbors as subjects, Hélène began producing her own news stories and fashion shows. From vintage clothing in her dress-up trunk, to reporting and producing WXXI-TV's popular weekly newsmagazine show, Need to Know, Hélène's journey is truly one to admire. During her speech she'll share the details of a multi-media news project she created, The Empty Hanger.
