SAN FRANCISCO, April 19 /PRNewswire/ — Scott Shuman abandoned the world of couture to hit the mean streets of New York City photographing real people wearing fashions their way. This veteran of the couture industry, who once represented legendary designers, including Valentino, Helmut Lang and Jean-Paul Gaultier, discovered his passion for fashion reaching new heights when he launched “The Sartorialist” blog which displays these photos for the world to appreciate.
The Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) holds its Annual Conference, “Partner with AICI for a Winning Business,” from Thursday, May 17 through Monday, May 21, 2007 at the Hyatt Regency, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Shuman will be the featured speaker at the opening reception, Friday, May 18.
“Scott has had a magnificent career in the fashion business, and his transition to becoming a successful new media blogger is a very timely subject for our AICI members and guests,” states Anna Wildermuth, AICI, CIM, the vice president of the conference and a certified image master, one of only a select few in the world to attain that status. “Our conference is all about education, certification and maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. Scott has built a powerful brand with the ‘The Sartorialist’, which has earned him many accolades, including a monthly column in ‘GQ’, the top-rated men’s magazine and a daily post in Style.com.”
