LEF Final Presentations

December 8th, 2009

Students from the Columbia Business School and Parsons The New School for Design unveiled their own innovative solutions to projects submitted by some of the world’s finest luxury goods companies. The presentations marked the culmination of a semester-long seminar entitled “Design and Marketing of Luxury Products”, where students interacted with senior executives in order to answer a series of assignments given by this semester's participating companies: Assouline, Chanel, Fresh, Graff and Louis Vuitton.

In this course designed by Professor Ketty Maisonrouge, Adjunct Professor at Columbia Business School, and taught alongside Parsons Design and Management faculty, Professors Heico Wesselius and Carlos Teixeira, students worked together to create design solutions and marketing models that appeal to today’s consumer and they revealed their visions and answers to the case studies submitted by the companies.

The Luxury Education Foundation would like to thank all participating companies for their dedication.
