The second bio in the series by LIM College Librarian Rachel King on the panelists and moderators at Fashion Now & Then, a symposium at LIM College.
Amanda Hallay is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Fashion Merchandising at LIM College. She is the former International Fashion Editor of Couture and Men Mode magazines, and was at one time European Trend Analyst for the Doneger Group, a fashion forecasting service.
Amanda is the author of several books of fiction and non-fiction, including the forthcoming Popular Culture of the 1950s and Kitsch Collectibles. She notes, “Kitsch is Bad Taste plus Time,” adding that we in the 21st century owe a debt of gratitude to “those forward-thinking folk who actually held onto (and, more importantly, photographed) items of questionable taste--items that are now considered historically significant and, in many cases, beautiful.”
Amanda is a graduate of the American University of Paris and England’s Bath Spa University.
