Throughout the fashion show, two Macy’s employees shared tips for dressing for success and other helpful advice for job interviews.
Following the fashion show, Macy’s employees announced that recent graduate Lindsey Wittlich’s Little League pin design will be used this summer.
Wittlich was a member of professor Lynn Estomin’s Projects in Commercial Design class. The students in the class entered submissions to be considered for the Macy’s Little League World Series pin for the 75th anniversary of the event.
“I was so excited and surprised about the win. Everyone in my class did an awesome job with their designs so it was really hard to tell who would be in the top three,” Wittlich said. “It felt great to know that I could represent my class with the winning design.”
The designs were submitted to Macy’s and store associates voted for their favorites.
Senior Christina Moliterno’s design took second place and senior Brianna Riddick’s pin idea came in third place.
The three winners received Macy’s gift cards and a plaque featuring their designs.
Wittlich’s winning design featured a baseball jersey with the Macy’s logo and commemorative text for the 2014 Little League World series.
She appreciated the opportunity to submit a design to a professional company outside of the college.
“I was really motivated to do my best when I heard that we would be making designs for a big-name company. I feel very fortunate to be able to contribute to the high standards of Macy’s and the tradition of Little League,” she said.
“This is a rare opportunity to have in college, and a great way to add credible experience to your resume.”
The pin will be sold this August and the design will also be featured in the Little League World Series parade.
