From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fern Mallis (born March 26, 1948) in Brooklyn, New York,[1] is the Executive Director of 7th on Sixth productions, the Vice President of marketing for International Management Group models, as well as the Vice President of IMG fashion. She is best recognized for organizing Fashion Week, an event which IMG currently produces.

Career

Fern Mallis began her career in fashion by working at several retail establishments including a brief stint at Mademoiselle. Afterwards, Mallis signed on as the executive director of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CDFA).[2] Designers then often showed at disparate locations throughout New York City. When a ceiling started to disintegrate during a show in 1991 at Michael Kors, the press complained about safety and the locations fashion shows were using. Since Mallis had just been hired at CDFA, she saw her new role as addressing that. She then organized what's now known as the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.[3].
