Women in New York Fashion: A Research Agenda is a three-year research project initiated in 2013 at Parsons School of Design, with funding from the Geraldine Stutz Trust. At its core it investigates and acknowledges the work of Geraldine Stutz (1924 – 2005), who served as President of Henri Bendel, a major fashion specialty store in New York City, for 29 years. This project places her work and accomplishments alongside those of other under-recognized women who were key to the development, business, and creative impact of New York fashion retailing in the twentieth century.
