• SCAD Style 2011


    I’m honored to announce that I will be speaking at SCAD Style 2011 in Atlanta April 26th at 6:00pm. In fact, it would appear I’m a bit out of place given the accomplished company of speakers SCAD procures each year. My lecture “How to Succeed in Fashion Without Really Trying” is free to attend, so bring a friend. Visit SCAD’s website for the exact lecture hall on their Atlanta campus. Please introduce yourself afterward as it is always nice to meet you all in person.

    Dear Fred,

    It was a pleasure to meet you yesterday evening at SCAD Style. Not sure you’ll remember me but I was wearing the white and navy saddle shoes. I appreciated you taking the time to chat with me an of course your other attendees. I truly enjoyed your lecture and admire your “friendly” attitude. I’m a regular reader of your blog and wish you well as your horizons continue to expand. Hopefully our paths will cross again as I continue to follow my goals to combine my career in events with my passion for fashion.

    Thanks so much, Fred. The lecture was impressive & it was a pleasure meeting you. Keep up the good work, and hope you can make your way to Stag in Austin. It’s worth the trip.

    @Mrs. Wasp
    I go to SCAD Savannah, and the dreadlocks, raggedy flannel and holey jeans are (for the most part) completely gone. Now, it’s all about the hipsters, the fake style that feels the need to take classic prep ware and ruin it… So Mr. Castleberry should come here, to Savannah, to bring prep here (and visit J Parker…)

    I noticed the SCAD Atlanta location after I posted. FEC, have a great visit to my home town, ATL.

    @AEV and others, it’s worth pointing out that the SCAD location hosting Fred is in Atlanta. 

    Looking forward to this.

    I used to teach at SCAD a few years ago. You are going to have a great time. They certainly will record your comments for a podcast if you like.

    If you like real Southern food, go to Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House on Jones St.

    Wish I could go FEC, looks like a fun speech. Am in Copenhagan at the moment.

    Darn it Fred, can we get video of this?

    @Chens—That is an equally intriguing title for a lecture in order to get college butts in seats.

    You should change your lecture title to “How To Succeed in Fashion Without Living in New York or Los Angeles.”

    Congrats Fred - Savannah is a wonderful city…I recommend The Mansion on Forsyth Park for drinks….

    Sounds cool. Do you know if your lecture or any others will be taped and put online? Sadly, I’ll be unable to attend in person.

    FEC, Congrats.  Some impressive company.  Well deserved.

    LOVE this!! Growing up in Savannah, SCAD bore nothing but thoughts of dreadlocks, raggedy flannel and holey jeans. I’m so happy to see you doing this! I hope it inspires the students to dress better without costing them a pretty penny!
