The doors of the fashion world opened for Engie Hassan when she began attending New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. Her studies were a great facilitator in allowing Engie to explore her artistic nature, simultaneously providing her with an indispensible foundation in the business of the fashion industry.
At F.I.T. Engie began to network within her class, comprised of both American and foreign students. This diversity furthered her already keen awareness of the diverse nuances in style specific to different cultures.
Engie received a B.S. in Fashion Merchandising Management from F.I.T., after which she graduated Summa Cum Laude from New York University receiving an M.A. in Graphic Communications Management and Technology.
During the course of her studies, Engie amassed a great deal of practical experience, interning with the some of the most preeminent fashion magazines in the world including Vogue, Paris Vogue, Teen Vogue and Numero. As an intern, she had the opportunity to work with some of the most sought after fashion stylists, editors, and photographers, providing her with a rare glimpse into the industry. These valuable experiences allowed Engie to bring forth her own unique stamp of creativity, as well as make the necessary contacts to succeed in the business.
In January 2010, Ms. Hassan made her official entrance into styling professionally with the launch of her own company, EngieStyle.
