Michigan Avenue Spotlights Fashion Resource Center Director Gillion Carrara

August 28, 2012—Fashion Resource Center (FRC) Director Gillion Carrara is prominently featured in the "View from the Top" section of the September issue of Michigan Avenue magazine. Spotlighting her role at the helm of "Chicago's most impressive fashion collection," writer Molly Each explains that the FRC at SAIC "has grown in part because of Carrara's personal relationships and sterling reputation in the fashion world." The two-page article, starting on page 63, features brilliant photos of unique items from the FRC collection and also dedicates a column to Carrara's sources of inspiration. SAIC alumna Monique Meloche (1991–93) is featured on page 68 in a "Talent Patrol" feature, as well.
