Michael Fink Named Dean of SCAD School of Fashion

MFink.jpgIt’s not official yet, but we have it on good authority (Women’s Wear Daily) that Michael Fink, who left his post as vice president and women’s fashion director of Saks Fifth Avenue earlier this year amidst massive layoffs, has been named dean of the new School of Fashion at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). Previously part of the School of Design, the School of Fashion encompasses fashion and accessory design, fashion marketing and management, and luxury fashion management. Fink, a former member of SCAD’s advisory board and a guest critic for the school’s senior fashion class, is preparing to move to Savannah (although something tells us we’ll see him back in Manhattan for Fashion Week come September). “I think it is an incredible change,” he told WWD. “Especially based on what’s going on in New York.”
