get to know the merchandising society

In 1961, Professor Nathan Axelrod had a dream of creating an organization where students at the Fashion Institute of Technology could come together to share their common interest in the business of fashion. Now five decades strong, the Merchandising Society has evolved from baby to giant, upholding the prestigious title of FIT’s largest campus organization, growing from thirty to a monumental 300 members and counting.

The Merchandising Society follows one mission: to enhance our members’ college experience by exposing them to all facets of the fashion industry. The Merchandising Society is dedicated to creating connections with professionals in the fashion and retail industries by hosting guest speakers, visiting company headquarters, and holding several alumni networking events throughout the year.

Fifty years rich in history, the Merchandising Society is still harboring Nathan Axelrod’s vision, cultivating a sense of fellowship and camaraderie amongst its members. With each new class of students taking on leadership roles within the club, we are certain that the Merchandising Society and Style Shop will continue to flourish for years to come.
