Old-School LIM: A Peek Into Our Photo Archives

posted by Kristina Ortiz, Dean of Admissions

I've been here 17 years, which may feel like a long time—until you compare my tenure here with LIM College's long history of preparing students for successful careers in the business of fashion, since 1939. That means two things. One: when our students say "LIM" around the industry, the industry takes note. Anyone who's anyone in fashion can appreciate our rich history and the decades we've spent in New York City doing what we love. And two: we've got some great photos in our archives...

For a quick trip down memory lane, check out these pics of LIM students from the 50s, 60s, and early 70s. (Fast fact: We officially became co-ed in 1971.) From the outfits to the accessories, there's so much to love in these images.
