PROJECT announces appointment of new president

Tommy Fazio has been named president of PROJECT and menswear, which encompasses S.L.A.T.E., STREET, and MAGICMENS. The announcement was made today by Tom Florio, CEO of Advanstar Fashion Group. 

Tommy Fazio joins PROJECT from his role as Men’s Fashion and Trend Director at Nordstrom. 

“It’s such an exciting time in menswear right now,” says Fazio. “American designers need the support of an organization like ours to unify the market and outreach on their behalf. The opportunity to do so with Tom Florio is an extraordinary one.” 

“There has never been a better time for men’s fashion inAmerica,” says Florio. “American designers are leading in innovation and American brands are some of the top selling brands in the world. However, America does not have a place on the world’s stage, as Milan, Paris and London do, to showcase our men’s designers. With Tommy onboard we hope to create partnerships that reestablish men’s fashion week in New York and continue to create new business opportunities for our community of retailers and brands at PROJECT,” says Florio. 

Tommy Fazio will begin his role as President on October 29th, 2012, and will be based out of Advanstar’s New York offices.
