Online Master's Degree Programs at LIM College Parallel Innovative Changes in the Industry

Posted by LIM College on Thu, Jul 21, 2016 @ 03:46 PM

 by Jacqueline Jenkins, Dean of Graduate Studies 

The fashion industry is experiencing a series of business changes. Innovative strategies are replacing traditional business models to leverage a company’s social media, technology and customer engagement processes.

Think of Rent the Runway; they changed the styling industry by renting clothes to customers online that might not have been affordable otherwise.

Large retailers are seeking new ways to reach their consumers through in-store experiences such as Macy’s new store concepts. Nordstrom acquired fashion and technology companies to enhance their online and their brick-and-mortar presence simultaneously. One of the most impactful changes is Amazon’s push for same-day delivery for almost any product category for Amazon Prime members.

Take a Break from Social Media this Summer

Posted by LIM College on Thu, Jul 21, 2016 @ 01:50 PM

by Mary Beth Maslowski

You’re on your phone, a lot, right? Gotta check your Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter accounts, your emails, maybe even Pokemon Go. So with all that and more going on, doesn’t it seem like you’ve ALWAYS got your face in a screen?

How many times has someone engrossed in checking emails bumped into you as you walk down the street? (Or, how many times have you walked into another person as you check out Kimye’s latest exploits?) ;-)

Pickler & Co - A Success Story

Posted by LIM College on Wed, Jul 20, 2016 @ 02:42 PM

by Edel Singh

It was the late summer of 2015 when Pickler & Co started to become a known presence in Midtown East, which was a big step for lifelong friends Eric Haber and David Lowenstein. This also wasn't the first time they've worked together in the food industry.

The name originated from their previous venture where they had introduced pickled onions to the menu. David began calling Eric "The Pickler" because of Eric's fondness for preparing the pickled onions and Batman comics, which features famous villains like the Riddler and the Joker.

As pickled food is a major part of the menu, they stuck with the name. It’s simple, memorable and representative of the concept.

Yakitori: Try Some Chicken on a Stick!

Posted by LIM College on Wed, Jul 06, 2016 @ 04:15 PM

by Mary Beth Maslowski

Yes, you read the headline correctly. And no, I’m not talking about a chicken frank or anything similar.

Yakitori restaurants are all over Japan and there are of course some here in NYC. By now you might be asking, what the heck is yakitori, anyway and why is it on a stick???

“Yaki” literally means cooked over direct heat and “tori” is chicken. However, at yakitori restaurants you can also get beef, pork, vegetables (like asparagus), tofu, and even squid skewered and then cooked over hot coals.
