A&S aum and designer Adam Lippes '95 is profiled in this Cornell Alumni Magazine article, which explores the approach he took during New York Fashion Week to showcase his line of clothing that's popular with celebrities.

"In presenting his new collection, designer Adam Lippes ’95 opted for something much more low key," the story says. "He hosted a cozy affair at his Washington Square Park townhouse, where models in pink velvet pantsuits, high-waisted culottes, and gold-fringed, floral-print dresses mingled with tea-sipping guests. 'I want people to be able to feel and touch and see the clothes,' he says, sitting down at his busy Manhattan studio to chat with CAM less than two weeks before the show. 'It brings back this intimacy to fashion that has been lost.' "
